OK, I see.

Thanks. I've added your patch with the following modifications:
  - Don't mention YP. We don't want to be sued by British Telecom.
  - getdomainname.h: More comments about the function's semantics.
  - xgetdomainname.h: Likewise.
  - getdomainname.h: Include <stddef.h>, needed for size_t.
  - getdomainname.c: Produce EINVAL error when the buffer is too small.
  - getdomainname.m4: Remove unnecessary AC_REQUIRE([AC_GNU_SOURCE]).
  - getdomainname: Fill the Includes: section.
  - getdomainname: Fix the lib_* variable name.
  - MODULES.html.sh: Put the functions into section "Misc", not "Networking
                     functions". (NIS is not a service that provides
                     networking capabilities.)
