Now if you are able to re-run 'make' in the scheduler/ directory
so that you at first remove the 'mailq' binary, you should see
linkage operation, and its tail has these libraries, possibly
in this order:
-lresolv -lnsl -lsocket -lxnet
Unfortunately I have no clue as to what Sol8 does, 2.5 (I think)
did introduce the -lxnet, which is nice call interface to the
socket syscalls, but usage of -lresolv needs also -lnsl and
-lsocket so that it won't barf mysteriously.
Hmm... now '-lresolv -lxnet' pair works just fine at that machine.
Very weird... Ah, if it tries now do (and finds!) object named
in the /etc/hosts, it gets a SIGSEGV. Those "-lnsl -lsocket"
must be in there for the thing to work reliably at Sol 2.6.
(nsswitch.conf says: "hosts: files dns")
The supplied gethostbyname() call resolves "localhost" internally.
Solaris 8 gethostbyname() does things differently, no doubt...
Oh yes, you *do* have 'localhost' at '/etc/hosts' file ??
