Description

dirmngr: Handle missing nsswitch.conf.

* dirmngr/dns-stuff.c (libdns_init): Fallback to files,dns.

ChangeLog entry by wk.

This fixed the problem:

Short version: macOS doesn't include /etc/nsswitch.conf and GnuPG's
dirmngr is hard-erroring when that file is missing, such that no DNS
operations succeed and --recv-key returns ENOENT type errors to the
caller.
