Description of problem:
The libresolv.so library in the glibc package on x86_64 is missing the
res_mkquery symbol which breaks configure scripts on x86_64. This is
true for FC3/x86_64, FC2/x86_64 and EL3/x86_64.

That's on purpose.  res_mkquery is in i386 etc. libresolv.so only for compatibility reasons.  For newer architectures (e.g. x86_64, s390x or powerpc64)
such compatibility is not needed, therefore just __res_mkquery is provided.
Comment 2 Dag Wieers 2004-12-22 16:36:52 EST
Ok. What is the proper fix for programs (or configure scripts) that require
res_mkquery ? Replacing res_mkquery by __res_mkquery makes it work on 64bit,
although I don't think I understand why that is required. Do you have a link to
some more information about this (Google wasn't much of a help).

Thanks in advance.
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2004-12-22 17:50:55 EST
If you #include <resolv.h>, res_mkquery will be __res_mkquery (it is a #define).
Configure tests that test for res_mkquery etc. without #include <resolv.h> are
just broken.
