Ouch. It really should not have any code included that uses getaddrinfo() when
c-ares is used... I've just pushed a commit to the git repo that removes it
from the build in this case:

getpwuid is used by the .netrc parser code and there's no build time option to
disable that, although you can of course just edit the source code to not use
