Removes resolve check from Ekiga configure.
This is how RedHat resolves the issue:
I have attached an equivalent patch for Gentoo ebuild net-voip/ekiga-4.0.1-r1.
The patch in comment 1 does the trick for me.
Had the same Issue on my Machine. Patch #1 works for me.

Current version doesn't build during emerge -e @world needed for conversion to Gentoo 17.
Why is it masked and planned for removal?
Apart of its own issues, the issues with the opal and ptlib versions this needs to use like:
We are waiting years for upstream to finally release ekiga 5 and stop relying on the old versions of this libs (and many other old libs it is also requiring), but that release never comes. I also remember to have reported bugs in the past to it and they fixing it only in the unreleased master branch, not to the ekiga-4 one
Pitty, as this was the last usable voip client.
IMHO the project is dead, in 2015 Ekiga 5.0 was announced, last dev
downloadable prerelease was from sep 19, 2016.
