I see that basesrc/lib/libresolv/Makefile has:

 SRCS=gethnamaddr.c ...

Why does libresolv need to build with gethnamaddr?

I removed that and removed the objects, etc, and rebuilt and installed
and as far as I can tell libresolv works fine -- at least with the Apache
binaries (like "ab")[1] that I tried that are linked to it.

1) I wonder why htpasswd and other not resolver-needing Apache tools even
need libresolv?
