I'm not sure how this is being hit on an upgraded system (it's understandable on a new install, best we can tell), but until a more permanent fix is out, edit /etc/nsswitch.conf and change the two instances of "compat" to "files"

Well, the new libnsl compatibility stub seem to still allow my installed gophernicus to run, but it no longer builds:
gcc -o in.gophernicus -pie gophernicus.o file.o menu.o string.o platform.o session.o options.o -lwrap -lnsl
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/7.1.0/../../../../lib64/libwrap.a(hosts_access.o): In function `host_match':
hosts_access.c:(.text+0x625): undefined reference to `yp_get_default_domain'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
so it looks like I will be needing the new standalone 'nsl' library I mentioned in the requests for current thread.
