Jag's discussion about local name service on Scyld was exactly right.

If you wish to create a permanently different nsswitch.conf, edit
/usr/lib/beoboot/bin/node_up to generate the contents that you want.

I believe this also means that the DNS resolver library has to be
installed in /lib on each node (as the NSS libraries are usually linked
in by dlopen() rather than by the dynamic linker).
