Hi folks,

I've been trying to compile the sources for the new release, but it stopped in the middle of it, saying

   gcc -g -O2 -I/cygdrive/d/vlad/otp_src_R8B-20011015-SNAPSHOT/erts/i686-pc-cygwin
 -DINSTRUMENT -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -Wall -DHIPE_ARCHITECTURE=x86  -Ibeam -Isys/unix -Ii686-pc-cygwin -Izlib -Ihipe -c drivers/common/inet_drv.c -o /cygdrive/d/vlad/o
tp_src_R8B-20011015-SNAPSHOT/erts/obj.instr.beam/i686-pc-cygwin/inet_drv.o

   drivers/common/inet_drv.c:178: arpa/nameser.h: No such file or directory

and it is correct, such a file doesn't exist on my system... weird, I think... I have compiled successfully R7.

Anyone knows what to do? Thanks.
regards,
Vlad
