Well, they're not exported in Solaris 9 either.  In our contrib'd
bind, they exist but are not referenced by anything within that
tree.  Bind9 also redefines them to be __res_send_set{qr}hook(),
which we do not do.  So even if something were expecting to find
them, it would have been looking for __res_send_setfoo() which
do not exist (even before my changes).
