NFS is a BLFS question, not LFS.  Please move the discussion there.

However it seems that /etc/init.d/mountvirtfs is not getting run:

if ! mountpoint /run >/dev/null; then
    mount -n /run || failed=1

That's the very first boot script.  You might want to put some echo 
commands there or perhaps a 'mount' command to see what is happening.

I do not have any experience mount / over nfs.
