Ah, that makes more sense.

That turns out to be kind of a pain to do with an option. I dunno. The
HAS_NISPLUS you commented out is Solaris-specific, so maybe just
taking it out entirely is the best approach. Then again, as NIS+ is
itself pretty much Solaris-specific doing that will break anyone who
has such a setup with an older version...
I wish there were a clear way to probe this.
