ypbind doesn't work with 2.4.21 kernel compile

I just compiled a 2.4.21 kernel for a CentOS 3.9 server at work and after booting with it discovered that ypbind no longer works. NIS functions correctly with the stock CentOS kernel (2.4.21-50). Does anyone know if there is something in the kernel that needs to be compiled into it in order for ypbind to work? All other network protocols seem to work fine.

I tried running "ypbind -debug" and got a "Segmentation fault" error. I uninstalled yp-tools and installed an older ypbind rpm package and now it is working. Can anyone shed some light on this? I am concerned about running into more of these types of problems with this kernel.
