Personally I think it's cleaner to use LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress.

I had the funny idea to drop the whole Windows specific part and
instead create /etc/resolve.conf in the postinstall script from
the output of `ipconfig /all'.  That would work nicely on NT,
unfortunately the `ipconfig /all' output on 9x doesn't contain the
DNS domain search list. :-(
