Umm, domainname returns the the NIS domain and not the internet
domain name. There's something wrong with Solaris and/or your configuration
if that's the case. Apache will never use domainname to get a FQDN, it's
just not the same thing.

Of course, if Sun have totally screwed this up with Solaris I wouldn't
be surprised :-)
