Please either: 

a) try https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/ngircd-18-2.el6 which should fix this issue. 

or

b) run avahi on the machine.

The updated rpm works so far.

The service starts and I can connect with an IRC client.

Thanks

Recompiled the srpm under CentOS5.
The tcp_wrapper-devel dependency had to be removed for a successful build.
So far, it seems to work, so it could be released for el5 and el6
