Can FreeBSD use a linux ypserver ?

As the subject says.

I'd like my (currently only one) lightweight FreeBSD workstation to be
available to the many people who already have accounts on an
established linux server. The latter has ypserv going but there only
the standard "passwd.byname" map.

The FreeBSD passwd manual page kind of mentions this subject, says
that FreeBSD does things to make it easier but does not clearly say
whether it is possible to do what I'm after. Is it ? Do I need to make
extra maps ?
