The yp-tools have a bug in them in the 64bit-version. In the 32bit-version of Slackware, the various NIS tools are to be found in /usr/lib/yp/. In the 64bit-version, the tools are in /usr/lib64/yp, but some of the tools rely on other tools and try to find them in the wrong place, e. g. /usr/lib/yp.
A workaround is to create a /usr/lib/yp directory on the 64bit version and to symlink the tools from /usr/lib64/yp.
I don't know quite how to report this bug, so I post it here.
