in pkgsrc/web/webalizer as of 20041009, the webalizer tool does not 
performs reverse DNS lookups from IP addresses present in access log 
files to analyse.

This comes from the configure script of the webalizer tarball (webalizer-2.01-10-src.tar.bz2) that does not find headers (and libs) 
of db4 database tool under Solaris 8.

launch the building of the webalizer-2.1.10nb3 package.

In the output of the configure script of sources, you will see: 
checking for dbopen... no
checking for library containing dbopen... no
configure: warning: You must have a V1.85 compatable DB library!
configure: warning: DNS lookup code will be disabled...

then the bin/webalizer generated program is not linked to ant libdb file.

when using it, the following messages appears:
Warning: Invalid keyword 'DNSCache' (webalizer.conf)
Warning: Invalid keyword 'DNSChildren' (webalizer.conf)
Warning: Invalid keyword 'DNSCache' (/local/users/webalizer/webalizer.conf)
Warning: Invalid keyword 'DNSChildren' (/local/users/webalizer/webalizer.conf)

apply the following patch to pkgsrc/www/webalizer/Makefile 
(from # $NetBSD: Makefile,v 1.32 2004/10/03 00:18:27 tv Exp $)

The package has changed, the patch doesn't apply.
Meanwhile Solaris 8 was desupported (a year ago),
if you still experience the problem with newer Solaris, report back.
