This is probably happening because the libresolv version that is installed on
the system doesn't contain the required version of symbols. This in turn is the
case for systems that haven't been patched in a long time. We used to have a
list of minimal Solaris versions for OpenCSW to work, but I can't find it now.
For Solaris 10, the version is 10u8:

I don't know what the version is for Solaris 9. Check your Solaris 9 version and
patch it if you can. If you manage to track down what version of Solaris 9 (SUNW_2.2.1) comes with, please let me know and I will post that
on the website.
