On implementations I've seen the interface to the name server was imbeded
in different gethostbyname and similar routines. These routines are
contained in libc, libnet, libBSD, or some similar library set. Where is
vendor dependent. These libraries need to have the name server version
put into them or you need to link with the appropriate object prior to
linking with the library.
