Modules/getaddrinfo.c should support AI_NUMERICSERV.

Moreover, not supporting AI_NUMERICSERV may cause troubles on platforms where the getaddrinfo function is available but it's buggy (see and Modules/socketmodule.c), because Modules/addrinfo.h does not #undef AI_NUMERICSERV and Modules/socketmodule.c exports AI_NUMERICSERV defined in a system header that may collide with another flag defined in Modules/addrinfo.h and confuse the user.

./configure --with-pydebug
Comment out HAVE_GETADDRINFO in pyconfig.h
Comment out ENABLE_IPV6 in pyconfig.h on platforms where getipnodebyname and friends are not available
