   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 ??
