I wouldn't necessarily add a configure flag and #ifdef WITH_RESOLVCONF.

I'd simply check at runtime, if the resolvconf binary is available ( g_file_test (RESOLVCONF, G_FILE_TEST_IS_EXECUTABLE)) { .. } )
OK, I didnt do that because I assumed that this is a debian/ubuntu
only thing. However, I could easily change it obviously.

(However, the fallbacks will still be necessary in case someone trashed
resolvconf by replacing the /etc/resolv.conf link with a file.)

I forgot: the ifdef WITH_RESOLVCONF doesnt mean "resolvconf will
exist", it just means: "try to use resolvconf".

So it just ment as a way to disable it for distros that dont have
resolvconf anyway.

Yeah, I guess you are right. It probably doesn't make sense to check for /sbin/resolvconf on distros, which don't even ship that tool in their archives.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
