yes this needs a fix. I have it still on my agenda to write something :)
Didn't have the time yet.

To see when which version was introduced:


src.opensolaris is down atm.

Do you need a map file?
We have the same problem with samba atm. But with libc version.

If you don't use the functions which are provided by the version.
In this case libresolve

pvs -ds -N SUNW_2.2.2  /usr/lib/libresolv.so.2 |more

would the linker link to older version?
I have not found any docs on that.

If it does the best way would be if it's auto* test (as in the samba
case) to hack it to fail the test for it.

Yes this will not work. As we are on update 9 on the buildfarm.

We can't distribute the patches.

probably a good idea.
