You reported in another letter that inetutils 1.7 functions properly,
but that inetutils 1.8 does not so with your 32-bit system. It is clear
from the first message that name resolution does not succeed.

Doing a difference check between version 1.7 and 1.8 of the directories
'libicmp/' and 'ping/', it strikes me that Gnulib introduces into
'Makefile.in' macros related to getaddrinfo() when moving from 1.7 to 1.8.
Could you experiment somewhat with 'config.h' in the manner of preferring
gethostbyname() over getaddrinfo()? Improvements?
