The test for getting this working is the following (from
#if defined(HAVE_YP_GET_DEFAULT_DOMAIN) && \
defined(HAVE_SETNETGRENT) && defined(HAVE_ENDNETGRENT) && \
#define HAVE_NETGROUP 1
For some reason one or more of the functions above are not being
detected by the configure script. Check through the config.log
file for clues.
