"make check" fails:

making check in tests/resolve...
make[2]: Entering directory `/nfs/amanda/local/kerberos5/krb5-1.0.5/solaris2.5/tests/resolve'
Host address:
FQDN: nserv

Resolve library did not return a fully qualified domain name
You may have to reconfigure the kerberos distribution to select a
different set of libraries using --with-netlib[=libs]
make[2]: *** [check] Error 3

In reality, the problem is not with "--with-netlib" at all, but
rather with the fact that the "/etc/hosts" file is set up with the
short hostname first: nserv loghost

and that the "nsswitch.conf" file is setup as:

hosts: files dns

I realize that this may be due solely to our local setup, but
others may run into it.

Simply changing "/etc/hosts" to: nserv loghost

solves the problem and "make check" completes successfully.

Setup as stated above.

1) Change output to also state that the problem may be due to the
setup of the "/etc/hosts" & "/etc/nsswitch.conf" files.
2) Possible fix - change resolve check to use DNS only?
3) Possible fix - change resolve check to handle multiple
returned names?

fixed long ago.
