Description of problem:
glibc has been ignoring the "order" keyword in /etc/host.conf for some years now, but the manpage for host.conf still documents the option without mentioning that it does not do anything any more.
The order keyword support was removed in the following commit upstream:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man host.conf
man page has information for the "order" keyword
man page should not have information for the "order" keyword or at least mention that the keyword does not do anything and that one needs to use /etc/nsswitch.conf now for this functionality.
