	I believe the above is to avoid the difference in size of _res.

	Is it really safe to rename it?  lib/libc/net/gethnamaddr.c (which
	is used from, for example, "dig") refers to _res, and gethostbyname()
	will be dynamically linked from libc.  Therefore, now gethostbyname()
	and functions compiled in usr.sbin/bind will touch different
	structures.  That is, I believe, not be the desired behavior.

	The desired fix is to sync src/include/resolv.h and
	src/usr.sbin/bind/include/resolv.h into one (or remove one of them
	and refer to only one).  I sent question to tech-net last week about
	which one is the right one (or latest one), to get no reply.
