You didn't look hard enough:

4.8 is known to run on Apollos under SR10.0; if you build libresolv.a
into a single object module (using `ld -r'), and then `inlib' it, it
magically replaces the gethostbyname in libc, so you don't even have
to relink the utilities which call gethostbyname. (SR10 includes a
slightly older version of bind).
