Bug#757941: busybox-static: DNS resolver stopped working in busybox-static version 1.22.0-7

Package: busybox-static
Version: 1:1.22.0-8
Severity: important

When trying to ping an address, like debian.org, with busybox-static you
get a "ping: bad address 'debian.org'" error.
I knew that version 1.22.0-6 of busybox-static was working, so I also 
downloaded version 1.22.0-7 and 1.22.0-8 and tested those:

# ./busybox-1.22.0-6 ping -c 1 debian.org
PING debian.org ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from seq=0 ttl=49 time=307.969 ms

--- debian.org ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 307.969/307.969/307.969 ms
# ./busybox-1.22.0-7 ping -c 1 debian.org
ping: bad address 'debian.org'
# ./busybox-1.22.0-8 ping -c 1 debian.org
ping: bad address 'debian.org'

So that means this bug was introduced with version 1.22.0-7.
Note that the non-static version does work properly (tested version

It makes the package rather unusable, but I'll leave it up to the
maintainer to raise the severity.
