If you try to run "ypmatch YP_LAST_MODIFIED master.passwd.byname" as
root (on your box and then on the master server), which error do you

reason: No such map in server's domain
reason: YP server error

Missing maps shouldn't get logged as "refused", since that error is
reserved for maps you are not permitted to read (either via the
securenets file or if the map exists, has the YP_SECURE key, and you
aren't root).

I looked at the source to Linux ypserv, and the only time it logs
"refused" is for those two conditions I mentioned above.  If you start
ypserv on the Linux box with the -d flag, it should log some more
information, including exactly why requests are refused.

Commenting out the lookup in src/lib/libc/gen/getpwent.c:mis_map() and
rebuilding world should do it.
