Solaris 10 Syslog Can't Resolve

After patching to the latest 10_Recommended, sendmail started complaining and a message like this appeared on the console:

writemsg(5): Logging msg 'syslogd: line 24: WARNING: loghost could not be
resolved' to FILE /var/adm/messages
The actual cause was that -- somehow -- /etc/inet/services had gone missing. Replacing this file fixed the problem. The entire time, getent, host, and nslookup were working. But Syslogd wasn't working correctly.
