Well, an obvious question for that patch is how it interacts with
--enable-obsolete-nsl. --enable-obsolete-nsl has four documented effects:
enabling being able to link against libnsl symbols and enabling the three
NSS modules libnss_compat, libnss_nis and libnss_nisplus. Does this patch
prevent all those effects on platforms with new ABIs? If so, the option
should preferably give an error on such platforms. But in any case, the
documentation of --enable-obsolete-nsl (install.texi and INSTALL
regeneration) needs to be clear if some or all of the semantics of that
option are unavailable on some platforms.
