Automount With Amd Auto Mounter

DragonFly BSD has been adding more and more clustering features lately including the very recent syslink communication protocol. As a run up to trying these features out under multiple Qemu sessions, I need to start sharing my /usr over NFS and configure automounting on the guest instances.

My home, pkgsrc, ports and build sources are all on /usr/home/shanu on the host OS and is now an automount away. Linux distributions use autofs instead of amd IIRC so these obviously work work there.
