A patch should be easy, but I have no system to test on (upgraded to Panther). 
  I'm a bit nervous about doing a name lookup at configure time anyway.


Is there any system other than OS X < Panther that ever had this problem?  I 
thought z/OS did because the autoconf test was failing, but it turned out that 
the autoconf test needed a little porting help.
