Sam spoke of "libisc4/libdns5" which exist only in testing and unstable, not

If it affects GNU libc, which is still unclear, at least to me. Pine's
original advisory states "Platforms: FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, maybe more."
and so far the status of http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/803539 for every
Linux vendor is "Unknown".
