NetBSD does not export this function, it is internal only.

yp_prot.h is not yp.h. Did you look at glibc yp_prot.h?

This defect is in the header files since the day Sun introduced YP
and it was never fixed official. We are bug compatible with the
official files from Sun in yp.[xh] and we  have a correct yp_prot.h
like Sun has, too. I see no reason to modify yp.[xh], this
will only introduce more confusion than it would help.
