Samba's ./configure script fails to find yp_get_default_domain() on
systems where this function isin libnsl and where libnsl is not needed
for anything else.

I wrote a patch[1] to address this, and I recently had an
acknowledgement from Jeremy, so I think that this fix will be in future
releases (note that the patch is for - if you want to use
this with 2.0.7 then you'll need to patch, then run
autoconf to generate a new configure, then run the new configure).
