        My thanks for answers and help to:
Casper Dik
Jesse Whyte
Nick Hindley
Karl Vogel
Moshe Bar

        Most of the people told me to check if there is "-lsocket -lnsl
-lresolv" in the libraries list - they WERE here.
        The right and fast answer I've got from Casper Dik - and it really
was the problem - after removing BIND everything compiles without errors.

        Here is his suggestion:
