Relinking ping and all others apps with the newest socket library should cure
this problem. The socket library since 0.56 contains the resolv+ code, which
allows you to specify in the file /etc/host.conf how a name should be looked
up. I have set it up such that first /etc/hosts is tried and only if this
fails the name server is contacted.
