The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
Juli Mallett reports :
mdnsd will crash on some systems with a corrupt stack and once that's
fixed it will still leak a file descriptor when parsing resolv.conf.
The crash is because scanf is used with %10s for a buffer that is only
10 chars long. The buffer size needs increased to 11 chars to hold the
trailing NUL. To fix the leak, an fclose needs added.
