I'm not aware of which of the binaries may be calling if_nameindex. The
ones which are being used continuously are Samba and Coda servers running
on FreeBSD (for the sake of ZFS), their current production versions are
still linked to uclibc.

Occationally I run "everything" i.e. a whole user environment in the
form of Linux binaries on NetBSD but it will take some time before this
happens and I test if_nameindex there.
