recent lib/ftp.c change breaks a couple of autobuilds

Hi Daniel,
the recent introduction of getnameinfo() into ftp.c breaks a couple of
builds, and it seems to me that this is a non-portable change ...
at best the getnameinfo() is IPv6-only, but even then it would break
Win32 IPv6 builds since older winsock headers dont have this function
which formerly compiled fine for IPv6. This manpage also suggests that
this function was introduced with/for IPv6:
(R. Gilligan, S. Thomson, J. Bound and W. Stevens, Basic Socket
Interface Extensions for IPv6, RFC 2553, March 1999.)

any ideas?
