We use darcs over NFS all the time here.  Our filesystems are exported by a 
  mixture of NFSv2 and NFSv3 served by a fairly recent Linux (and in the 
past, older versions of Linux also worked).  We get the occasional borked 
repository, but it's hard to tell whether that's darcs or NFS or user error.
