man page patch

The mount_nfs(8) man page documents the gssname option for setting the service part of a host-based principal to use with Kerberos secured NFS exports.  When used in this fashion, the system hostname is appended to the service name to form the principal name.  However, this option may also be specified as <service>@<fqdn>, in which case the entire name of the host-based principal to use is taken from this option.  Document this fact.  This is useful if for example the system gethostname(3) value is for some reason different than the system FQDN in the KDC, which would be used to generate the host-based principal.
