[fpc-pascal]Better/full internet-support in FPC on Linux?

Some time ago I tried to write a program which should work with nameservers to
check if forward and reverse lookup give the same result. Should basically do
the same what "host" and/or "nslookup" can do, but be implemented so that I
do not have to execute external programs all the time.

But I realized that inetd is not able to work with nameservers well enough.

Is there an extended inet unit available, including nameserver support? Should
be a 1:1 replacement for the old inet unit of fpc 1.0.4, because I am still
using 1.0.4 (newer versions do not work correctly on old old 2.0.33 systems
like SuSE 5.2/5.3, but this is a MUST for me).
