The version that currently is in blfs is 1.1.4 which at this point is over 2 years old and now with the current version of LFS using a diffrent glibc no longer builds cleanly. I understand that blfs does not always match up with the current version of LFS but soon this pacakge will need to be updated in order to continue to be availiable.   One of the issues with the newer build of this has diffrent requirements for dependancies then the old version. 
 To be fair, BLFS is slowly getting more up-to-date now that we've
dropped the requirement to build on LFS-6.5.  I suspect that you and
I are the only people who use nfs in BLFS.

What I am wondering is if there were any plans to update this package or if anyone had built one of the newer builds and had sorted all the depenancies out yet? I have a current LFS install and have yet to be able to get NFS working due to this pacakge not wanting to build with that toolchain and the newer one requesting dependancies that I am not sure where to locate. 

 I've got it (1.2.2) working *as a client with (only) nfs3* - please
see ticket #2842.  I'm a long way away from seeing if it works as a
server with the same configuration hacks.
