Thanks to all who responded so quickly.
I love this list.

Long and short was this.

1) READ the FAQ..

Yes.. I know there is a section in there which tells me I need to use
the B=-b option of the makefile, but my makefile must be an abortion cause
it weren't there. So the only other options seem to be

        a) Get and build Bind
        b) Get and build resolv+

I opted for b) since it sounded simpler and indeed it worked out
pretty well. I didn't want to spend a lot of time fixing or
mucking with these systems and the engineers using them won't let
me upgrade them , so this seems like the best option for others
who might be in this situation.
