SUMMARY: Don't Want To /export

Well, I said it was dumb. Here I was trying to screw around with NFS,
and NFS had nothing to do with it.

Solution, with thanks to Nathan Dietsch and Arthur Darren Dunham, is:

# umount /export/home
<change /export/home to /lyris in /etc/vfstab>
# mkdir /lyris
# mount /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s7 /lyris

The partition was never exported in the first place.

On the brighter side, at least I haven't broken anything yet.

Yet. <g>
