I do believe you have misunderstood.  My complaint is that am-utils
requires the type of config files you pasted here.  Most every other
unix operating system, Linux and the commercial unices, now comes with
an autofsd/automountd which uses the auto.master/auto.* config file
format which requires far less configuration and is *interoperable* in a
heterogenous environment.  On each of the SGIs and the Linux box here I
have an /etc/auto.master that does little more than +auto.master which
includes a NIS map that works everywhere.  This is not nearly as easy
with the standard BSD amd.
