It sounds like your system is trying to mount an NFS share from somewhere, but that share is unavailable for some reason. Look for any mount processes running on your system. That's probably what's causing the message. Or it could be the automounter trying to mount a remote NFS share too.

This sounds like an automounter problem. If you are not using the automounter, turn it off. You can do that by editing /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf. Change "AUTOMOUNT=1" to "AUTOMOUNT=0" and reboot.
