The attached patch fixes Ncat on BSD libc platforms, where bugs
in getaddrinfo(3) until recently have prevented Ncat to resolve
hostnames to addresses due to the combination of used parameters,
especially in combination with the numerical service name and no
socket type hint provided.  Since we provide a numerical service
name, the actual socket type given does not matter.

Thanks Daniel. It works for me on GNU/Linux.

I committed the fix.

Does the function resolve_name in ncat_hostmatch.c need this
too?

Not according to test-addrset.sh, which passes all tests.  Not
sure though whether this really covers resolve_name() very well.
