Description of problem:
There is a typo in the log message that is written when a reverse DNS doesn't
match the foward lookup.  Running "strings" over the binary reveals the

with reverse

The typo is a misspelling of "doesn't".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

4.Read /var/log/messages.

Actual Results:  There is an entry that read: "DNS forward lookup does't match
with reverse"

Expected Results:  The entry should read: "DNS forward lookup doesn't match with
