[Nagiosplug-devel] 1.4.9 and Invalid hostname/address

Hi All,

Just compiled up 1.4.9 on Solaris 7 and seeing some strange problems with
plugins failing with the error "Invalid hostname/address"

bash-3.1# ./check_mysql -H ariadne
check_mysql: Invalid hostname/address - ariadne
Usage:check_mysql [-d database] [-H host] [-P port] [-u user] [-p password]
bash-3.1# ping ariadne
ariadne is alive

These checks work fine under FreeBSD but not on Solaris 7, any ideas?

The hostname is resolvable and even trying with IP results in the same
