Question netcat install?

i keep having this problem wheve i try to install netcat on my slack 9.0 box:
so i just completely got rid of res_init by just by deleting it because for some reason even when i commented it out it was still giving the same error. and i got this output instead:

#make linux
make -e nc XFLAGS='-DLINUX' STATIC=-static
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/security/netcat'
cc -O -s -DLINUX -static -o nc netcat.c
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/security/netcat

now the funny thing is i don't know where netcat installed itself to. i run the "nc" command and this is what i get:

bash: nc: command not found

so did this program installed or not? and if it did then where?
thanks in advance.

Copy the binary to /usr/local/bin and you should be all set. If there is an "install" target in the Makefile you could do a make install (as root) to install it.
