Since glibc 2.2, the function res_querydomain(3) is implemented as a
define to `__res_querydomain`. Due to this implementation detail, using
`AC_CHECK_LIB` with a symbol name of "res_querydomain" will cause a
linking failure and thus fail to detect its availability. This is why
right now, we try to detect availability of `__res_querydomain` instead.

Unfortunately, this may break on other platforms where there is no
`__res_querydomain` but only the function without leading underscores.
To fix this, we can perform another `AC_CHECK_LIB([resolv],
[res_querydomain], ...)` call in case where the other one was not found
and only raise an error if both symbols weren't found.
