IRIX 6.2, gcc

The SERVER_NAME environment variable isn't being fully expanded to the complete
host.domain name format.  I.e. if I connect to http://ftp/cgi-bin/ident.cgi the 
SERVER_NAME variable gets set to only "ftp", when it should be resolved to 

This problem doesn't occur on our IRIX 5.3 apache server.
To demonstrate this problem, DNS needs to be configured locally such that
ftp and ftp.cs resolve to ftp.cs.umn.edu.  For example, our client /etc/resolv.conf
looks like this:
domain cs.umn.edu
search cs.umn.edu umn.edu

Explicitly do a DNS resolution, and set SERVER_NAME to it?  (Should  be quick
as long as /etc/hosts has entries too.%2
