For several years, now, I've been using exclusively hesiod for amd
mount maps (among other things). I simply have a couple local patches
to turn on hesiod support in amd that I place in my union-mount build
tree before I make the world, and it's worked great.
Last week, I noticed a new amd was incorporated into -current. At
first, I was pleased, since I haven't heard anything new about amd for
years. Unfortunately, I noticed that it's been merged into -current
completely devoid of hesiod support. Specifically, the file
info_hes.c is missing.
I understand that most people don't use hesiod, so I have no problems
with it being turned off by default in amd/config/Makefile.config
(although I could argue that libhesiod.a is a whole 13k on sparc, and
it might be nice to include it in NetBSD), but the current situation
is a bit less useful to me. And I can't seem to find any reference to
where to look for the latest (complete) distribution of amd, now
apparently known as am-utils.
Any clues? I'd like to use the version checked into -current, but
I'll need the complete distribution before I can compile it.
