NIS is just a NSS module in glibc, it's not huge, and doesn't
have extra libraries.

LDAP has a nss/pam module package (nss_ldap); its requires
are just glibc and the openldap libraries.

As for the other requirements on openldap libraries, that's
just for things that use LDAP for things you can't get via NSS.
