I don't think it does. A grep over the source tree
doesn't turn it up anywhere.

I've read the code in
libraries/javalib/java/net/InetAddress*.java and 
libraries/clib/net/InetAddressImpl.c, and I'd assume
that it doesn't. Neither does the pocketlinux version,
judging by their DNS.c file, despite that they
factored out the DNS handling code into kaffe.net.DNS.

InetAddress caching shouldn't be that hard to add,
though, if you'd like to submit a patch. You may also
want to take a look at the code in GNU Classpath's CVS
tree, which implements InetAddress caching. See
