[JDEV] ADNS Update

Just as a note for Solaris. Someone kept posting "All you have to do is
run ldconfig" and "You just need to update your Library Path".

Well that isn't the case for Solaris 8. There is no ldconfig for those of
you who didn't know, and it goes by whatever is in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Adns compiles, with Dynamic = yes, and with the default Dynamic = elf,
to not make a .so file. It makes a .a, and a .so.1.0 .

You have to hand sym link 

ln -s /usr/local/lib/libadns.so.1.0 /usr/local/lib/libadns.so

Just and Fyi for those of you who have problems with it.


Hi Steve,
