[OpenAFS] minor bug: -afsdb does not understand CNAME

Apparently if the host listed in an AFSDB entry is a CNAME record,
afsd will not chase the reference.

I take it that afsd doesn't use the usual gethostbyname() to resolve
the hostname it gets after pulling an AFSDB record... is there a
reason why this is the case?
