nfs-utils package (nfs server) without kerberos/gss but supporting nfs version 4?

Attempting to install an NFS server on a Crux 2.8 box, I notice from the
Pkgfile that the configure options include --disable-gss (i.e. no
Kerberos dependency) but including neither --disable-nfsv4 nor
--disable-nsfv41 (thus presumably supporting NFS versions 4, 4.1).
This seem to imply a limited security model: wouldn't the kerberos model
be the typical one for NFS version 4? Would the kerberos package be the
only additional dependency with --enable-gss=yes (the default)?
Also, the kernel support of keys (CONFIG_KEYS in .config) might be
required for an NFS version 4 server in either security model -- I'm not
My only suggestion is that a short README file in ports/opt/nfs-utils
could explain these two points. I am not confident enough to propose
some text, sorry.
Best regards, and thanks again for the Crux distributions!
