These days it does little. CHANGES references to getifaddrs.
2342. [func] Use getifaddrs() if available under Linux. [RT #17224]
2160. [bug] libisc wasn't handling NULL ifa_addr pointers returned
from getifaddrs(). [RT #16708]
1751. [bug] --enable-getifaddrs failed under linux. [RT #12867]
1626. [bug] --enable-getifaddrs was broken. [RT#11259]
1454. [port] Use getifaddrs() if available for interface scanning.
--disable-getifaddrs to override. Glibc currently
has a getifaddrs() that does not support IPv6.
Use --enable-getifaddrs=glibc to force the use of
this version under linux machines.
