  The previous commit changed the behavior of nsdispatch() in the
  case where an /etc/nsswitch.conf file was present, but could not
  be opened (e.g. due to permissions).  Previously, the open failure
  condition was suppressed, and the built-in defaults were used.  In
  revision 1.11, however, propagated the open failure causing all
  nsdispatch() invocations to return NS_UNAVAIL, and thus many APIs
  including getpwnam and gethostbyname unconditionally failed.
  This commit restores the previous behavior.
