Yep. It looks like my sources (and presumably Paul's) were from a period
sometime between when getnetby* was altered to do DNS lookups and when
Jason added support for looking at the resolv.conf "lookup" directive.
Until Jason's changes I think it always used the DNS first, regardless of
what resolv.conf told it. The doc/CHANGES file from a newer current has the
following entry in it:
libc: now that getnetby*() supports BIND lookups (as opposed
to only files), add support for dispatch for via
"lookup ..." in /etc/resolv.conf, a'la gethostby*().
[Sigh!] Time to "make build" again... :-)
