The NIS+ page says, you need glibc >= 2.0.91. Which one is contained in hamm?

GNU C Library: 

The NIS+ support for glibc 2.x is written from scratch. The getXXent and 
getXXbyYY functions are all implemented.
DES authentication for NIS+ (secure level 2) will work with the GNU C Library 
snapshot version 2.0.91 or later. You
also need the glibc-crypt and glibc-linuxthreads add ons. You have to 
configure glibc with:
configure --prefix=/usr --enable-add-ons=crypt,linuxthreads,... 
The NIS+ support is not and will never be in the released glibc 2.0.x ! The 
first glibc version with NIS+ is the 2.0.91
test release. 

For more information about the GNU C Library, look at
