It looks like the configure script is broken in a way that makes Racket
use gethostbyname() instead of getaddrinfo() to resolve hostnames.

Can you check "racket/mzconfig.h" in your build directory and confirm
that it includes

  /* #undef HAVE_GETADDRINFO */


If so, does changing that line to


and rebuilding fix the problem?
