System: NetBSD vlad 1.4.1 NetBSD 1.4.1 (GENERIC) #37: Fri Jul 16 23:35:36 EST 1999 root@vlad:/usr/src/sys/arch/pmax/compile/GENERIC pmax

	The install procedure for majordomo looks in /etc/group for the
	"majordom" group - this fails if that group is in hesiod or one
	of the other network databases.  It does use finger to do the
	username lookup, so that is ok...
	Try to install majordomo with the majordom defined in hesiod,
	nis, etc.
	Non given.
