Just a wild guess, but nis doesn't respect the non-interactive
frontend. I know libnss-ldap and libpam-ldap don't respect it and we
had to rebuild them both here to get our automated install going.
Basically its just commenting out some stuff from their postinsts, but
for you it might be trickier. We just over write the conf files, if
your trying to continue to use debconf, then you might have to
intelegently modify it.
