I worked on that last week:

The NIS+ stuff is not yet complete, I need to rewrite
the callback function for TI-RPC.
Else it's currently only building with TI-RPC, not SunRPC from
glibc, but that should be easy to solve.

But the NIS and compat stuff is working fine with TI-RPC.

Oh, and I forgot: of course you need the latest libtirpc from git
plus some additional patches I did send upstream, but not yet added ...
