If you are threaded and you use _res you'll break with NetBSD because we

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.

IIRC, this broke my sendmail last time someone tried it. It is what
finally got me to change to postfix.
