    Until the NIS code uses connected sockets thats not the case.

    Nope

    They have an option for it SOL_SOCKET, SO_BSDCOMPAT. It has been there for
    years. The right way to fix this would be to set that flag when FAVOUR_BSD
    is defined in glibc (ie _bsd_socket) . Then nothing else breaks.

    The current change is basically vandalism
