Description Florian Weimer 2017-08-18 14:15:34 UTC
Upstream glibc writes this:

* The “ip6-dotint” and “no-ip6-dotint” resolver options, and the
  corresponding RES_NOIP6DOTINT flag from <resolv.h> have been removed.
  “no-ip6-dotint” had already been the default, and support for the
  “ip6-dotint” option was removed from the Internet in 2006.

Lack of Internet support means that we can safely remove this from our glibc as well.

Relevant upstream commit:
