Thx a lot for the suggestions, I got it work now, just don't ask me how and 
why, because I don't know it myself...... ;-)

mmmh.... Nisutils1.4.1 compiled just smoothly under Debian sid. I don't think 
my binaries will help you a lot, because of different version of glibc and 
other Libararies I compiled against. However I read some reports in Internet 
from guys, who succesfully compiled Nisutils under Mandrake... I'd like to 
see the errors you get, I'm quite sure that I can help in this case.
