10.5: Flush DNS cache
I primarily work with web servers, and I use lookupd -flushcache all of the time to clear my DNS cache.

This morning was moving some websites around using my newly-upgraded Mac, and I went to flush my DNS cache with lookupd and I got a command not found error. It seems that lookupd has been removed in 10.5 and replaced with dscacheutil.

So now I can flush my DNS cache with dscacheutil -flushcache.
