The problem was that in /var/yp/nicknames hosts map stands for
hosts.byname. The hosts.byname doesn't contain comments (they are striped
in the makefile). If one ypcat hosts.byaddr (or changes the nickname that
as in most other unix dialects : SunOS 4, HPUX 9&10, ...) the comments are
shown without any problem !!!
