As to my knowledge -O6 is not a legal option for debian
packages. Except for special files (like the innermost loop of xaos,
which uses -O3) only -O2 might be used. A package like ypbind should
not eat that much cpu time to make -O6 neccessary and the risk of
breaking something is far to high (on any arch). I would consider -O6
a severe bug (i.e. a bug that make the package unusable) since its
just to risky.

Be happy. I get a ~30 MB message file (as large as there is space on
/) from ypbind when it goes berserk here, because it itself can tell
that it repeats itself.
May the Source be with you.
