As pointed out in
the basic problem is that configure builds a program that calls res_query
without including resolv.h as it should.
Some googling led to another approach (grep for res_query)

Does linux use a recent bind adding underscores (grep res_query resolv.h)?
Does OpenSSH's configure behave OK there? If so, why?
