Solution 1:

make distclean
aclocal
automake
./configure

Solution 2:

Or just simply add '-lnsl' to the link line. (cut and paste, add -lnsl, sorry
I'm lazy that way.)

Solaris (as do most typical system V derrivatives) have most internet specific
routines living outside libc, hence you need to link in additional libraries.

Hope this helps, and good luck.
