Sorry, you picked a bad time to start with amd(8).

It's just plain broken in -current. Really bad things happen if the
name resolves but the host is down or unreachable.

Actually, this is a serious bug in am-utils-6.0a8 that affects all
systems, not just NetBSD.  Erez Zadok told me that he has fixed this in
am-utils-6.0a10, which wasn't released at the time he said that.
