 On the bind subject: I didn't do it explicitly, but apache is performing
 lookups in some cases, just not all. How do I link explicitly? In all the
 software I've compiled over the last four years, this hasn't been a problem
 with this OS (or I've been lucky).
 On the NIS/YP front: we use it, but barely. Just enough to avoid having to
 replace it, but not for any real purpose. It's set up to use DNS primarily.
 /etc/hosts: not sure why this affects externally looked-up FQDNs - can you
 explain? Does an FQDN in the /etc/hosts file force DNS involvement in
 resolver lookups? That seems odd.
