Excuse me, because I applied previous patch by hand, so the
nest of parentheses was incorrect, and I correct it now.

Actual message is the following.

ingram2# /pub/src/nsd/nsd-3.0.2-local/nsd -t /proj/nsd3
[1164854165] nsd[5156]: error: cannot parse address '(null)': getaddrinfo: hostname nor servname provided, or not known

I tried -4, it works fine, but this may be out of point
because I got EAI_NONAME, not EAI_FAMILY actually.

I wonder these help or not,
- options INET6 is excluded from my KERNCONF.
- I didn't apply --disable-ipv6 on configure.

s/^- -/-/ makes it fine.
