The != NetBSD indeed is curious. Perhaps it was == NetBSD ||
exists(/usr/bin/ypcat)? But anyhow, this is being discussed in multiple
PRs on GNATS, sadly without final resolution yet. The direction to go
seems to test for the respective headers instead. I myself need to
check why the presence of /usr/include/rpcsvc/yp_prot.h is not enough
to make the python NIS stuff build on my system.

Alrighty then,
