Thanks for the report!

On this system, does it build fine if you use the local nameser.h instead of
<arpa/nameser.h> like when ares_create_query.c compiles?

I'm thinking about adding an extra test for the ns_t_* symbols in the system
header before actually using it instead of the local version...
