	Yup, I understand... putting A6 chasing into libc is too much to
	handle...  BTW, do you have any idea about getaddrinfo and nsswitch
	relationship?  I think it can only be fixed by modifying near
	res_search() and res_query() (BIND4/8 terminology).  My local
	modification has special version of them with getaddrinfo.
