Due to an incorrect handling of pointers, using ypinit to build the S390x NIS slave server against the Solaris 10 UltraSPARC NIS master resulted in the following error:

  *** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x00000200001a1000 ***

With this update, the slave server no longer stops responding when the invalid pointer is freed, and ypinit builds a set of administrative system maps as expected.
