That's what I needed to know. The --with-nisplus option has been
unmaintained for at least 2 years now.  I had forgotten about you previous
patch.  That's why I asked.

Send the diff directly to me and I will make sure it get's
applied.  I'm also in the process of defining a set of regression
tests for SAM modules (changing passwords, client joining Samba

for each module prior to a release.  Obviously we will need some
help with the NIS+ testing :-)
