IDN support is integrated (using Simon Josefsson's GNU libidn) to
glibc 2.3.3 - FC2/3 already have working IDN support (tested).

The package "libidn" is in Fedora Development also available.

Bill, I know that this encoding hack is just wrong, it's removed now
and the patch is updated, because DENIC allows querying for ace domains 
also, yet :-)
