Um, no. Out of the box on SunOS 4.1.x, both /usr/lib/libc.so.1.x (the BSD
shared libraries) and /usr/5lib/libc.so.2.x (the SysV shared libraries)
use NIS (if running) or /etc/hosts (if not).
Given your description it sounds like you've replaced the gethostby*
routines in the BSD shared libraries, but not in the SysV shared
libraries. This is commonly done simply because not much (other than vi,
and when does *that* resolve hostnames?) uses the SysV shared libraries.
The shres/INSTALL instructions in BIND 4.9.3 (currently at BETA17) include
directions (and a script) for updating both BSD and SysV shared libraries.
They should probably add a note about this in their documentation, though,
since (as I mentioned earlier) many people skip updating the SysV libs.
