checking for gethostbyname

Description

While trying to compile curl I came across the problem that it can't find -lnet (even try'd with -lbind) to check against it. This used to work before, Jack told me over at IRC that libbind and libnet links are removed from the developer folder. I then changed the configure script to use -lnetwork in order to make it find gethostbyname. Is this planned to stay like this or is it just a temporarily change? Breaks some possix things the way it is now (one needs to manually edit ./configure to check against -lnetwork). PS. This is with revision 25571. (if it is already fixed in a later revision just ignore this ;) )

libnetwork.so is what Haiku uses. Compatibility for BeOS in only for already compiled applications, not for apps that you compile with the Haiku headers.
