Module nisconf: new

I have moved the code to configure the NIS domain and server from Linuxconf core, so it can be disable on systems without NIS. I have added also some inter-module messaging abilities. This module reacts to the various user account management messages and update the NIS database. It does that by executing the /usr/lib/linuxconf/lib/nisconf_update utility (which does "cd /var/yp && make").

You can turn off this automatic update right in the NIS configuration dialog.

Bug fixes

Module nisconf: updating the database as needed

The module had the ability to update the NIS database whenever some modification were made to user accounts (using Linuxconf). There were various cases where the module failed to notice and this was leaving the NIS database out of date. When groups were modified and when a user was changing his password (using the web form), the NIS database was left unchanged.
