Actually, no.  Both dig and nslookup only use the resolver, so if you have 
an active hosts file ("hosts" before "bind" in the /etc/host.conf) you 
won't necessarily get the same thing as a program will.  I've written a 
simple program that is basically a command line wrapper around the 
"gethostbyname" system call.  If there's any interest, I'll put it 
somewhere visable.  This mailing list doesn't seem to support attachments.
