Re[2]: dns via socks5 failed?

This way of selecting DNS resolution for SOCKS5 is now inconsistent with the
SOCKS4A method from the libcurl side. To use remote DNS resolution on
SOCKS4, you must select a new SOCKS version number. To use remote DNS
resolution on SOCKS5, you must set the old SOCKS5 version number, but
must also set a new option CURLOPT_SOCKS5_RESOLVE_LOCAL. I see no reason
to have such a distinction.
