Not to mention that the current amd is not very usable at all: it lacks
very important capabilites: NIS maps and NETGROUPS, but that has been
reported as well. The fix for this bug is easy: recompile it after you've
edited the config files: they date from some 0.99.x version when there was
not NIS or NETGROUP support under Linux ...

And when the amd has those options it naturally needs to be started _AFTER_
ypbind has come up (and not _BEFORE_ like it is now). But that has been
reported as well.
