hello, folks.

yesterday I experienced an issue while compiling freeradius-client.
thankfully, it was a known one, a bit old one btw:
so, I cloned the alan's github repo and created a new configure flag, which
allows the user to choose what implementation of gethostby[addr,name] to

it worked for me, and solved my problem. I'm not sure if it's the best
approach to fix the issue, though. as I'm new in this software, maybe you

proposing patches?

thanks for your attention,
Jonh Wendell
