Sendmail is not threaded, hence it is perfectly fine to use __res. I
must confess I do not understand why this change was done. The commit
message says:
- convert to use res_n* functions
  - allows for linking against threaded libraries

But I do not know what case we are talking about. I already link
sendmail with a SASL plugin that does not use threads, but pulls
-lpthread through other libraries, and it works fine, hence it is not
the problem we have here.
