According to the glibc Changelog, getipnodebyname() and
getipnodebyaddress() were depreciated and in July 2000 were removed
from the library. I believe that the 'replacements' are getnameinfo()
and getaddressinfo().

BTW. dcc is the *only* application which supports IPv6 which I have
installed which cannot find IPv6 on my system.
