Bug#85397: need to call res_init


According to the manpage for resolv.conf, it is read only once
when the program is invoked:

	The resolver configuration file contains information that
	is read by the resolver routines the first time they are
	invoked by a process.

Since the base system is retrieved within dbootstrap, if the
nameserver file is incorrect the first time it is read it will
never be reloaded, even if the network information is

I tested that calling res_init(3) after changing the resolv.conf
file will cause it to be reloaded, so I believe that the following
patch will fix this bug.
