Tricky. Usually, NFS runs over UDP, which I don't believe SSH can tunnel.
NFSv3 can run over tcp/ip - you would have to force it. You will also
have to get it tunnelling mountd too. I don't think you can specifiy an
alternate port for lockd though.
So, setup the ssh tunnel on the local machine (running on port 2818,
going to the NFS server, and the mountd tunnel on 3045). have an fstab
localhost:/export/home /home nfs tcp,port=2818,mountport=3045,nolock
And it may work. But, if you want security, you don't use NFS.
