localhost is the hostname for the IPv4 and IPv6 address assigned to the=20
loopback interface. Thus if you are lacking INET and INET6, there is no=20
way to access "localhost". :-)

The loopback interface, however, is still addressable via other protocol=20
families. Obviously only address families that use it will be able to, but=
that's kinda the point.
