This will, however, start nis in parallel with autofs, whereas what is
probably wanted is that nis be up and running before autofs is

I guess that the wanted behavior has to be implemented through some
sort of "start-nis" task which starts on autofs starting, blocks the
latter so long as it runs, and stops when nis has started.

Or perhaps there is an easier way.
