using the NATIVE cc compiler.  But I don't think that it matters. 
During apache's startup, apache dlopen's all the shared library's, and then dlcloses them,
and then re-dlopens them.  This causes some issues on UnixWare with some of the routines in
-lsocket.  There is some static initialization that happens when some of these routines are
called.  If an extension, such as PHP4 in my case, needs -lresolv in addition to -lsocket,
we wind up with a wrong function pointer stored in the static data section.  A quick fix in
my case was to force -lresolv into the apache link.  My question is why do we do this?  there
is *NO* guarantee that the libraries will wind up at the same place in memory. 
see above
Don't dlopen/dlclose/dlopen just dlopen once.
