Kerberos MIT on Solaris

I have done 
./configure CC ='/opt/SUNWspro/bin/CC'
export /opt/SUNWspro/bin/ to the PATH
and getting the following error message from ./configure.

Configure: cannot find res_nsearch or res_search

Note: I haven't tested this myself, but something like
the following will probably work:

    env CC=cc CFLAGS='-xarch=generic64' ./configure ..

If the right cc isn't in your path, you might have to change
"CC=cc" to "CC=/opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc".

If you're linking with 64-bit libraries in /usr/sfw/lib (eg.
Sun's bundled openssl), you might also need to add:

    LDFLAGS="-L/usr/sfw/lib/64 -R/usr/sfw/lib/64"
