I'll set it up tomorrow, but I see no difference between the "insecure" 
option for one export and the disabling of securenfs which I have in the 
  sysconfig file. I also note that some of the working clients are using 
port 32770, which is above both 1024 and 32768...

I can try it, but secure NFS should just flat be gone.
