Great :)

With gdb, so far, that's the best thing to do.  I am thinking of
recompiling it soon, but will have to confer with Michael Dorman before
attempting it since he initially patched it.

If there are any other dependency problems, let me know :)

Hmmm...well, admittedly, the version of nis on master for the Alphas is
outdated and patched by me (which was never tested, fyi, since I don't
have the environment to do so).  As soon as I get a fresh compilation of
glibc and netbase/netstd, I'll go ahead and recompile it for master.
In the meantime, I will attempt to package the latest version up for you
to test.
