I don't have an explanation for this, other than the version we
distribute always goes in /usr/local which is usually locally mounted
so nfs related problems wouldn't show up. It also seems very odd that
this happens only on the Intel systems.
Is the NFS volume mounted read-only or could there be permissions
somehow associated with the mount? I remember that we did have an
issue at some point to do with the way that drives were mounted on
OSX but the details escape me.
