One can't use HAVE_SOLARIS_GETHOST_TYPE as this is also defined for
some other platforms.

Exactly what did you mean?  The following ?

		  (thd->priv_user == thd->user ?
		   (char*) "%s@%s on %s" :
		   (char*) "%s@%s as anonymous on %s"),
		  thd->host ? thd->host : thd->ip,
		  thd->db ? thd->db : (char*) "");

PLEASE always use patches instead of describing what is wrong;  The
problem is that one may have done some changes in the source and it's
very cumbersome to have to unpack old releases just to check what one

No, the problem was a missing row in 3.23.1.
Here is a patch:

*** /my/monty/master/mysql-3.23.0-alpha/sql/	Sun Jul  4 18:48:21 1999
--- ./	Wed Aug  4 18:57:59 1999
*** 30,35 ****
--- 31,37 ----
  static int mysql_find_files(THD *thd,List<char> *files, const char *db,
  			    const char *path, const char *wild, bool dir);
  ** Send list of databases
  ** A database is a directory in the mysql_data_home directory

    char *ext;
    MY_DIR *dirp;
