Why did my console become a how-to guide? This is pretty excessive in
my opinion, especially since it still says in the message to refer to
the wiki...

These are the kind of messages that make me never want to read these,
and we wonder why users ignore them.

(26/36) upgrading nfs-utils                         [#####################] 100%

  ==> Extended configuration options for NFS (clients & server) are available in
  ==> /etc/conf.d/nfs-common.conf and in /etc/conf.d/nfs-server.conf
  ==> Please refer to http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Nfs
  ==> for further information on NFS; for NFSv4, refer to
  ==> http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NFSv4

  ==>  If you plan on using NFSv4, in /etc/conf.d/nfs-common.conf set:
  ==>  1) NEED_IDMAPD="yes" to start rpc.idmapd - on clients & server.
  ==>     rpc.idmapd needs to be properly configured; edit at least the
  ==>     Domain line in /etc/idmapd.conf.
  ==>  2) NEED_GSSD="yes" to start rpc.gssd (GSS authentication) -
only on clients.
  ==>  3) Add "rpc_pipefs /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs rpc_pipefs 0 0" to /etc/fstab.
  ==>     If not mounted when the init script nfs-common starts it
tries to mount the
  ==>     filesystem automatically (if rpc.idmapd or rpc.gssd is needed);
  ==>     see /etc/conf.d/nfs-common.conf for extended configuration options.

  ==> Only on server /etc/conf.d/nfs-server.conf set:
  ==>  1) add "nfsd /proc/fs/nfsd nfsd -o rw,nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0"
to /etc/fstab.
  ==>     If not mounted when the init script nfs-server starts it
tries to mount the
  ==>     filesystem automatically; see /etc/conf.d/nfs-server.conf for extended
  ==>     configuration options.
  ==>  2) NEED_SVCGSSD="yes" to start rpc.svcgssd (GSS authentication)
- on server
