Hopefully not.  The ypserv(8) man page notes that it takes a -p option
which lets you specify which port it binds to.  The init script passes
$YPSERV_ARGS to it on the command line, assuming it's been set in one of
the configuration file that the script sources beforehand.  Of the two
that it uses, my guess would be that /etc/sysconfig/network is the more
appropiate one to use.

So while I haven't personally verified this, I expect that adding
  YPSERV_ARGS="-p 755"
to /etc/sysconfig/network and unblocking ports 755 (or any other port
you prefer -- 755's just one I chose at random) and 111 (the one the
portmapper uses) will let it work.

HTH,
