Would the "openSockets" function do what you need? Not as direct as what OS9 could do, but those days are over. And I am sure there must be an appleScript gadget that could query the network.

Is there a *fast* way to see if another machine is currently on the
local network, by name (somemachine.local) or otherwise, from within
livecode?

There's always sending a message and waiting for it to hang, but I'd
like something that happens quickly.
