Yes, definitely.

Even with the bug of not correctly indexing all of your files, doing a
static index for these two NFS directories is probably a good idea
anyhow.  You don't want constant network traffic when indexing these

You can use the beagle-build-index tool for this.  Take a look at the
manpage or look at the beagle-crawl-system shell script to see an
example of how it works.  Essentially you can create a cron job for
this, and Beagle will recrawl the directories and add any new files to
the index.  If you place the indexes in /var/cache/beagle/indexes, they
will be automatically picked up when you restart the beagle daemon.
