I feared that might be the case.  Oh well, I'll do that this

I tried this; building distrib/utils results in:

cc -O2 -Os -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-prototypes \
-Wpointer-arith -Wno-uninitialized -Werror   -c gethost.c
gethost.c: In function `_gethostbyaddr':
gethost.c:159: argument `len' doesn't match prototype
/usr/include/netdb.h:262: prototype declaration
*** Error code 1

which is rather curious; I suppose because the system it's
building under is -current.  (The 1.5.2 shouldn't be at
fault; I downloaded it from .tgz yesterday).
