Description Mikhail Teterin 2000-04-13 22:20:00 UTC
	Currently, the  default amd.map will cause  amd to mount
	the filesystems using NFS even  if the requested host is
	the same.

	The  change below  will make  it use  symboliic link  to
	the  / when  the machine  is  local. One  can still  use
	/net/localhost if NFS mount is essential...

	Putting a reference to
		http://www.cs.columbia.edu/~ezk/am-utils/
	into amd(8) and amd.conf(5) would A Very Good Thing (SM).

Fix: This can probably be expressed even better, but it works
	for me...

Just for the record - the new autofs(5) doesn't handle localhost in any special way.  While most implementations indeed have a special case for this, using nullfs, and it would be possible to do the same in ours, I'm not sure it's worth it anymore with current hardware.
