The resolver functions in Cygwin are only available in CVS(*).  It will
not be made available as release any time soon.  If your code is
supposed to run under current versions of Cygwin, you have to install
the minires-devel package and link against -lresolv.


(*) Big THANK YOU to Pierre Humblet for allowing to integrate the
    functionality into Cygwin, btw :)
