Subject: lshw FTBFS: res_querydomain declared but not implemented

I've been trying to build lshw [1] with musl, and I ran into a few problems:
1: lshw uses __uint8_t (standard fixes work)
2: It wants GNU basename() (I added <libgen.h> and used -fpermissive)
3: It wants MAX_PATH from some header that doesn't have it: I added <limits.h>
4: It wants res_querydomain.
This does not show up until link time, since <resolv.h> declares it.
However, musl does not acually implement this function.

Currently, I've got a very hackish implementation that isn't fit to ship:
-it doesn't check for name == "machine."
-it doesn't handle domain == NULL (should use name, without any terminal ".")
-it does no error checking, on the assumption that res_query can handle that.
