What I am wondering is, would the network be more (or less) efficient if I moved the contents of /opt on the server to, say, /home/opt, then on the client had only one mount line then a bind mount line;
Well there would be slightly less overhead on a single connection, in terms of the outright connectivity, but when comparing the management overhead with the files themselves, there is no worthwhile saving to be made.
There is a big difference between NFSv3, which you're presumably using, and NFSv4. the old version is UDP and portmap based, whilst the newer stndards are much simpler and purely TCP based on a single connection port, and also only have one export per server as the formal model, using the fsid=0 terminology, largely similar to your thoughts about a single mount point on v3.
I am now receiving errors when trying to invoke particular tools in /opt/softwarea and /opt/softwareb
