getdomanname(3NSL) on Solaris is in this weird limbo state -- it 
doesn't have a prototype declared in a header, but it exists in 
/usr/lib/libnsl.so -- if you do nm -Cp /usr/lib/libnsl.so | egrep 
getdomainname you should get

0000304076 T getdomainname

now the ./configure script checks for getdomainname the symbol and the 
prototype, respectively -- on Solaris, ./configure misses both. :-) 
so, if you look in config.h, there should be two entries: one for 
both end up commented out -- and then further down in config.h there 
should be a prototype declaration for getdomainname (3NSL). so the 
only thing you have to change is to uncomment HAVE_GETDOMAINNAME in 
config.h and set it to #define HAVE_GETDOMAINNAME 1, but leave the
