Looks as if.  It would be nice if there were a simple way to discover that in 
fact anything that calls e.g. getpwnam() actually needs all that gunk on a 
Solaris box (and, presumably on any other system using an "integrated" naming 
service, whether it be NIS+ or LDAP or etc.) but I think that might be pushing 
it.:-/  ("who designed these bloody OSes anyway?")
