Follow-up Comment #27:

Ok, dns client is check in. "msvc6" port is updated to test it. The "todo
list" is updated. We can also thought to sequential api. The main problem is
how to provide a safe-thread function :

struct hostent *gethostbyname(const char *name);

In "http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/007908799/xns/endhostent.html";, we
can read :

"The gethostent(), gethostbyaddr(), and gethostbyname() functions may return
pointers to static data, which may be overwritten by subsequent calls to any
of these functions."

But the best solution should be to provide a "per-thread" hostent.
