Well, it isn't, at least not directly.
I just wanted to point out that PAM + NIS doesn't works as advertised
and that one should be aware of this. Or, even better, that somebody
who got it working as expected could show me what am I doing wrong.

In my experience, PAM + NIS authentication works fine which is
probably sufficient for Cyrus IMAP/POP. However, password changing
doesn't work as expected.
