I don't know; I wrote those files by hand.  :-)  I would guess that it
just doesn't matter if you've got the resolver set up with a search
path, and that's the normal config so nobody noticed.

    shivers> - Can I alter these files to use fqdn's with impunity?

I don't know, but I've done it with no ill effects.  It did require a
restart all around, though.
