As promised last week, now is an ALPHA release of ypserv for NetBSD
available. Utilities in this release are makedbm, stdhosts and ypserv.
A first makefile for creating maps exists but is stupid an rebuilds
all maps every time.

The server has been tested with the following commands:

ypwhich -m [map]
yppoll map
ypmatch key map
ypcat map

and a test program calling yp_first and yp_next.

The server has been tested from clients running NetBSD-current (late April)
and SunOS 4.1.3.

I'm planning to start working on ypinit and yppasswdd soon (any day), other
utilities when I get the time...

The tar file can be accessed by anonymous ftp from

That's all...
