   Deficiencies in the current automounter, amd(8), are a recurring
   problem reported by many FreeBSD users. A new automounter is being
   developed to address these concerns.
 
   The automounter is a cleanroom implementation of functionality
   available in most other Unix systems, using proper kernel support
   implemented via an autofs filesystem. The automounter supports a
   standard map format, and will integrate with the Lightweight Directory
   Access Protocol (LDAP) service.
 
 Will it also integrate with NIS (as SunOS and Solaris do)? FreeBSD's amd 
 currently integrates with NIS as well.
 

and  hesiod?
i can help with the testing
danny

 It's just a matter of testing, apart from a trivial shell script.
 Would you be able to help me with this?
 
 
 
 Sure! Just point me in the direction of the patches.

So, the autofs branch is here: https://github.com/trasz/autofs.
Directory services integration is done by external executable,
which is usually a shell script.  There is an LDAP example,
at etc/autofs/include_ldap.  Script to integrate with other
services (which would be include_nis or include_hesiod) needs
to do the same - retrieve the map named at the command line
and output it to stdout, in a proper format.
