Luke, we don't need dns - the 'host' key will do that
if the underlying host has been configured to do dns
lookups. 'host' means just call gethostbyname(), which
will do dns lookups itself if it's been configured
that way.

We don't need (want) dns resolver code in Samba (IMHO :-).



Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
