Thanks for all responses, the problem has solved.

I think that you have to specify:
> LIBS= -lresolv -lsocket -lnsl -lkstat
whether or not you are running NIS or NISPLUS

in my case before I used:
> LIBS= -lresolv -lsocket -lnsl -lkstat
because I think I am not using NIS and NISPLUS...

Well, I am not sure why.

In the Digital Alpha I only specify -DNDMB and it worked.
