Hi all,

Ruby 1.6.7 on Solaris 9

I'm adding reentrant support for gethostbyname to the Sys/Host module.
So, in the extconf.rb file I have this:

have_func('gethostbyname_r')

The source.c file contains #include <netdb.h>, which is where that
function is defined (under /usr/include)

When I run "ruby extconf.rb", I get this:  "checking for
gethostbyname_r()... no".  The same thing happens on Solaris 8 as well.

Why isn't it finding gethostbyname_r ?  On Linux, it returns "yes", btw.

Any ideas?

Regards,

Dan
