I too have noticed this problem.  It prevents the (reliable) use of
iptables for filtering ypserv requests.  

ypxfrd does not seem to suffer from this problem.  If it cannot bind
to the given port it complains gracefully.  ypserv doesn't appear to
be even attempting to bind to a port since in debug mode it still dies
before producing any output.

This is a duplicate of bug 123158, which I reported to Red Hat more
than a month ago.  They have not responded yet.  Note that although
"ypserv -p 4005" segfaults, "ypserv --port 4005" works OK (on RHEL3).

Fixed in ypserv-2.13-5. Thanks for your report.
