Actually, the bsdi (1.1, NOT 2.0) binaries are rock solid for me - or at
least, they were when my i386 box worked. :>
For sparc, if you can get your hands on a SunOS /usr/lib/libc.s[ao].1.9,
/usr/lib/libdl.so.1.0, and /usr/lib/ld.so, put those in /emul/sunos/usr/lib
and you'll have a working netscape_dns binary. The SunOS 4.x bin is far
more stable than the Solaris one. (From experience running the bins
actually on Solaris. ;)
