Description of problem:
The getipnodebyname, getipnodebyaddr, and freehostent functions are not part of
glibc. They were briefly part of a development version but never released. The
function originate from XNS/POSIX.1g where the people soon realized that they
are not suitable. getaddrinfo is the one interface to use.
Remove the man pages for these functions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Removed in man-pages-1.48-2.
