compiled without warnings and deployed on some lab systems...

the code try to identify the socket type by some assumptions
-> start with '/' -> unix-socket
-> contain ':'    -> IPv6 address
-> contain '.'    -> IPv4 address

It would be more clear and give more options if NSD wouldn't "guess".
(think, somebody want to use a relative path ...)

NSD (and unbound as well) could require sockets specified as "<typ>:<value>"

postfix does this:
	unix:pathname
	inet:host:port ( host = ipv4 | ipv6 | dnsname )

sendmail does that:
	unix:pathname
	inet:port at host
	inet6:port at host

but I'm also fine with the current implementation :-)

I don't care about that software
