[RC5] name resolution

Is there any particular reason that dnetc needs "nslookup" to resolve
domain names when running under Linux? This strikes me was rather
restricting; not every system has nslookup installed and considering that
ISC is deprecating nslookup another solution should probably be found.

Regardless, shouldn't the requirement be documented? I installed dnet on a
Linux system that did not have nslookup installed and was wondering why it
insisted on doing random blocks. This was especially mystifying since
every other application on the system could resolve domain names.
