as of the 4.3p2 release the following ones are still present:

ia.h, sys/dir.h, sys/prctl.h

This is still the same with the latest snapshot. If you need further  
details please let me know.

This library does not seem to exist on IRIX 5.3:

Can't locate file for: -lresolv

it wasn't already, but it did not make any difference either :-(

Is there a way I could try old snapshots between 4.2p1 and 4.3p1 to  
narrow down why name resolution no longer works with 4.3?

an additional remark to the current snapshort:
in packet.c please remove #include <netinet/in_systm.h> as it is  
already included through includes.h, and including it twice breaks  
things on IRIX 5.3 (actually the OS's header files should guard  
against this, but here it fails to do so)
