Re: update nis_3.5-2_alpha.deb on debian 2.1

According to Paul Slootman:

It is? Sorry, I don't know the policy manual by heart. But recommended
doesn't mean compulsitory right. I can imagine that some packages would
be very hard to adjust.

Hmm, mine doesn't have this at all, it has #define PACKAGE "$PACKAGE" etc.
It indeed looks that something went wrong with autoconf on your system.

Well automake no, that would be autoconf.

I have autoconf 2.13-12, and that generates the right configure file.
Do you mean 2.12-13 or 2.13-12 ?

Should be fixed in nis_3.5-2 though, where there is an extra
"touch yp-tools-2.4/configure" line in debian/rules which should
prevent the configure script from being regenerated.

First things first, but not necessarily in that order.
