        The etcupdate(8) tool takes care of updating the 
        /var/yp/Makefile.{main,yp} files, but it does not look at the 
        Makefiles in /var/yp/$(domainname). They start out as copies
        of Makefile.yp, and unlike the latter, they are sourced when
        you do a 'cd /var/yp ; make'.


        Run etcupdate after an update that ships a new
        /var/yp/Makefile.yp, and find you have to manually patch your


        Add /var/yp/*/Makefile to the list of files to be updated,
        comparing them against the new var/yp/Makefile.yp.
