use of resolver_state and resolver_inited are wrapped with an "#ifdef NSUPDATE"
everywhere they occur _except_ in the above and when building x_dhclient
NSUPDATE is explicitly undefined.


I made the following patch to get it building but the ifdef probably wants to
go around the whole function.

Indeed the ifdef does need to go around more of this.  With the above patch you
now get through to the link stage and die there with:

dhclient.o(.text+0x41ef): undefined reference to `get_dhcid'

I'll send this off now in case someone else knows what should be conditional
on NSUPDATE before I work it out.
