Thomas, I'm not sure if this particular declaration belongs in
pyport.h, even inside #if 0.

CLIENT is declared in a NIS-specific header file that's not included by
pyport.h, but which *is* included by nismodule.c.

I think you did the right thing to nismodule.c; the pyport.h patch is
redundant in my eyes.
