   Hmm..  No, keep resolv-parts, even Sun supplied libresolv.a
should do it.  However do set  B=-b  at your NIS master Makefile.
(and when you do that, remake at least the hosts maps.)
I myself did remove "-lresolv" from makefiles, however I have
generated new  shared libc with  bind.4.8.3+ -resolver...

  Well, some resolution is necessary in every case, but NIS-flavoured
one will do.
