  Is anyone here using NIS (Sun's old "Yellow Pages" service)?
There's a bug for this on Linux that's been assigned to me for some
time, but I don't have access to a network using NIS.  Can anyone
either confirm the bug or the fix?  Or at least confirm that the
suggested fix doesn't break the nis module on some other platform?
(Testing this on a Sun SPARC box would be really nice!)
  I'd really appreciate some help on this one.  The bug report is:
