Sudoers in the NIS Maps

What works for us is to pass around the sudoer's file via an NIS automount
file ... e.g.
/users auto.home -soft
/usr/common auto.common -soft
We tuck the sudoer's file in hostname:/usr/common/lib, make a /usr/common
directory on each host and then fire up the automounter, and then compile
sudo for each OS with ./configure --sysconfdir=/usr/common/lib (we're still
using 1.5.4 ... I don't know if syntax changed with later versions.)

Subject: Sudoers in the NIS Maps
I have setup my nismaps to include the sudoers file, does anybody know how I
can get sudo to use the NIS map rather than search the local /etc directory
for the sudoers file?
