  The resolv.conf file, which tells IRIX how to resolve hostnames, is
  in /usr/etc in IRIX 4.0.x but /etc in IRIX 5.x. Applications compiled
  under IRIX 4.0.x and moved to a 5.x system will not be able to find
  it.  The easiest fix is to do 'ln -s /etc/resolv.conf /usr/etc', and
  the best fix is to recompile. See 'man 4 resolv.conf'.
