Description

The local variable 'name' in the setup_resolv() function in ypserv_resolv.c source file is actually a dead code. It is initialized to the hostname here:

167    if (sysinfo(SI_HOSTNAME, name, sizeof (name)-1) == -1) {
168        syslog(LOG_ERR, "can't get local hostname.\\n");
169        (void) kill (*child, SIGINT);
170        endnetconfig(h);
171        *fwding = FALSE;
172        return;
173    }

But other than that it is never used.
