__RES was made specifically to let code work with different resolver
versions. I expect the same issue to come up with other old systems
and checking __RES would allow building without trouble on those old
systems where a current resolver is installed.

It should be ok for the release, though, and admins that run a current
resolver on HP-UX probably know what to edit. :)
