HELP with autofs and NIS: How to override mount options on all mount points?

    I have a Linux box that's trying to use autofs to mount a sizable
    number of mount points from a Solaris server. I'm doing this over a
    VPN, so the default mount options cause NFS to hang up hard the instant
    I try to work with files over a certain size. The solution is to
    change the mount options, and I have figured out what those options

    I have an empty /etc/auto.master file, because I want to rely entirely
    on the server for which mount points exist. It all works fine in terms
    of automatically mounting, but the mount options are wrong.
    Every search I have done on autofs, auto.master, etc. all talk about
    how to manually set up mount points, which somewhat defeats the purpose
    of using autofs, so I'm a bit confused.

    In any event, what I would like to know is how I can override the mount
    options for all mount points mounted by autofs. Is there a single
    place, such as auto.master, where I can globally specify an override
    set of options to apply to all autofs mounts?
