:Having sockets not work is a real problem.

Well, here is an additional clue. I checked the config.log file for
"socket" and find this message:

configure:3264: checking for socket in -lsocket
configure:3283: gcc -o conftest -g -O2   conftest.c -lsocket -ldl  -ldl
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lsocket
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure: failed program was:
#line 3272 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"
/* Override any gcc2 internal prototype to avoid an error.  */
/* We use char because int might match the return type of a gcc2
    builtin and then its argument prototype would still apply.  */
char socket();

int main() {
; return 0; }

I guess I have to ask my admin where the lsocket is??? I dunno?
