I think only few people use it. I myself do not use --with-nisplus
now and also know it is currently unmaintained.
How about first announcing that the next release will not support
--with-nisplus unless anyone becomes the --with-nisplus maintainer?
And even if no one did, we should not disable the feature, I
think because some users actually use this option. Instead adding the
--with-nisplus Include NISPLUS password database support (NOT supported)
is better. Also for --with-ldap, we should add description.
And how about other options? It seems that some other options such as
--with-ssl, --with-krb4, --with-dfs and --with-afs are also not used
I'm sorry if some of them are maintained.
