Oh wonderful.  The "Ultrix Y2K Readiness Kit" for both Ultrix 4.4 and
4.5 has upgraded bind to version 4.9.3 Beta 17 (I have no idea what the
original was), and my original "patches" (to put it nicely ;) no longer
work.  I was really hoping to have bind8 build out of the box with the
original resolver from libc, and will still put some effort into getting
to this end.  If I don't win at this, is it acceptable to say "You must
replace the libc resolver before you can finish building bind8"?
