Hi everyone,

I'm running FreeBSD 8.0-CURRENT and is having problems with the libc's
getaddrinfo() function. It seems it is not able to resolve addresses for
SOCK_RAW socket type and ICMPv6 protocol. 

abbe [~] monte-cristo% uname -a
FreeBSD monte-cristo.france 8.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 8.0-CURRENT #4: Thu Mar 26 03:18:32 IST 2009     root at monte-cristo.france:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64
abbe [~] monte-cristo% ping6 -n
ping6: Invalid value for hints
abbe [~] monte-cristo% telnet 80
Trying 2001:4860:c003::68...

Escape character is '^]'.

Should I file a PR ?
