Thanks again to Greg and Hal, for forwarding this on.

As fortune would have it, this message came while I was in the midst of
installing the UCB BIND 4.8.3 resolver routines in a 4.1.2 shared libc.
A 38 kB shar file, including a modified version of Greg's README, describes
the process. Since this is straying a bit from this group's charter, I
will refrain from including it hear and will post it to comp.sys.sun.admin.
I will also post it to sun-nets, mostly to see if that list still works.
Anyone unable to retrieve it from either source should feel free to ask for
a copy via email---if the demand is really high it might be posted here.
Our ftp/news machine has been rather flakey, so I hesitate to put it there
for anonymous ftp.

P.S. Thanks to Steve Miller who originally outlined this procedure in
a sun-nets message.
