Ares change: IRIX problem

This is strictly speaking a problem with c-ares, but I'm not on that
mailing list.
I just noticed because autobuilds have started to fail on IRIX.


The problem is c-ares commit 90364defb038d5 which introduced the file
ares_create_query.c, this file uses ns_t_opt from nameser.h
On IRIX this is <arpa/nameser.h>, and ns_t_opt does not exist there.
It does exist in the local "nameser.h" file in the c-ares source, but
that's a fallback file for those systems which don't have either of
<netinet/in.h> or <arpa/nameser.h> or <arpa/nameser_compat.h>
Actually none of those ns_t_* types exist in the IRIX version of
nameser.h (I've checked up to IRIX version 6.5.24m. I have 6.5.30m
somewhere but it's not online right now so can't check).
Not sure how to best handle this.
