autoconv: NISPLUS_HOME support is missing

There is no way to enable NISPLUS_HOME with the autoconf setup.

A very simple test to get this information automatically would

if grep '^automount:.*nisplus' /etc/nsswitch.conf >/dev/null; then
  echo "this machine is using a nisplus automounter table."
  exit 0
exit 1

But an option --with-nisplushome might be better.
