Usermode NFS - still in existence ?

I have a system running a vendor supplied kernel that I do not have the
ability to change. Further, it is modified enough that normal modules
will not load into it - and of course I cannot compile modules to work
with it since I don't have the source to the kernel.

And for some reason they did not compile NFS in.

And I need this system to be an NFS _client_.

What are my options ? I see that at some point there was a usermode NFS
... does this still exist ? Is there some other way of mounting an NFS
volume from userland - really any solution is fine, I just need to mount
my nfs volume from this server.
