Well, at least ithe version of nis in 2.1a2 compiles without warnings on Tru64
Unix, V4.0F with Compaq's C compiler, and does the right thing with
"make test" (since nis is installed but not running):
test test_nis skipped -- internal NIS server or client error
and when run manually:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "Lib/test/test_nis.py", line 10, in ?
raise TestFailed, msg
test_support.TestFailed: internal NIS server or client error
As mentioned in previously, nis support on this platform is in libc.
