   Downloaded nis-utils-1.4.1 and did ./configure which completed without
   any errors on this x86_64 host.

Another problem you may encounter is that recent pam_unix2 may be
stripped of some essentials, such as set_secrpc.  We used pam_unix2-1.7
with some modifications in src for Debian x86_64.  I did not attempt to
compile nisping, and the other utils (e.g., nis_cachemgr) are from
ancient 32-bit builds.
