Several people told me the proper answer, and it has appeared here before
(Sorry, I didn't catch on to that)....
The code to determine the host name is all wrong in sunsolve. It takes
the output of `hostname` and concatenates that with the remainder of
`domainame` after striping off the first 'name' (up to the first dot)
in domainname. In my case that abonimation, of course, was not in my
DNS stuff. So I faked it out by adding to my
'local' DNS stuff and it now works, of course.
