Dear Ludo’,

thanks for the help!

Unfortunately, this turns out to be quite cumbersome since in my case
(unittests for unbound) there is a lot of test data to be modified and
in many cases not only plain text but also encrypted records (DNSSEC 
tests). On the other hand the values to be looked up are mostly “udp”
and “tcp” in /etc/protocols and “domain” in /etc/services, so I decided 
that using a preload library for these few glibc calls just in case of 
the unittest should do the trick rather than no checks at all. However, 
it is an ugly hack and bloats the package definition.

That might help!

Many thanks to all contributers for this very nice peace of software!
