Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: nis

I am using Lucid server amd64.

The man page for ypbind does not include any information about the -p
switch. This switch specifies a port number for ypbind to accept
connections on. Running `ypbind --help` returns the following:

        ypbind [-broadcast | -ypset | -ypsetme] [-p port] [-f configfile]
          [-no-ping] [-broken-server] [-local-only] [-i ping-interval] [-debug]
        ypbind -c [-f configfile]
        ypbind --version

revealing that the -p switch is supported.
