I think you have said resolv.conf Search directive doesn't work but
nsswitch.conf was mentioned and there is a diff between this machine and one
of the arms. So what do I put in nsswitch.conf to make cups search the hosts
file first?

The bare minimum would be:

hosts:      files dns

Mine contains this:

hosts:          files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns
and my bpi54 is:
hosts:          files mymachines dns myhostname

The "search" directive in /etc/resolv.conf is followed by a space-separated
list of domain names.  Yours should say:

search coyote.den
aha! again: was:
search hosts,nameserver
Which is not space separated, thank you, I've got it fixed in 2 places now. I think.
