Yes, sorry. Really it's an upstream issue. Postfix should have a def check for
Solaris 11 now that it's been confirmed.

If you're on Solaris 10, NIS is not going away. If uname -v returns snv_130 or
higher the patch should be applied.

Some builds have letters after the number, e.g., snv_151a is Solaris 11

Other distros have changed their nomenclature. e.g, OpenIndiana is oi_147

It would probably be better to somehow test for the existence of NIS rather
than relying on build names. :\
