[Bug libc/12377] getaddrinfo() should disregard link-local IPv6 addresses for AI_ADDRCONFIG purposes

Perhaps there is different behaviour based on OS X version?

I put my test program into the hands of some OS X users, and on their systems
where there were only IPv4 and link-scope IPv6 addresses, the setting of
AI_ADDRCONFIG did not preclude resolving the likes of "::1" or a link-scope IP
address (so presumably "::1" was not special cased).  One of them is known to
be running 10.6.8, the other I don't have their revision information.

I can provide both the test program and output of it and ifconfig and such if
desired, but won't clutter the bugzilla with it unless asked.
