glibc doesn't contain /etc/resolv.conf so it gets created with duff permissions

Freshly installed system.
/etc/resolv.conf isn't owned by any package. Instead it gets
created at some random time. Unfortunately it gets created
with mode -rw------- (only root can read).
This means that once DNS servers to use are defined, only
root can use them still!
One fix is to include a virtually blank /etc/resolv.conf
along with glibc, but making sure it has the correct
After doing a fresh install on several test machine, each time the
resolv.conf file is created properly with the right permissions.
