Version: 1.66
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

  I have local proxy dns server that accessible on and it use /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf 
(binded to chrooted directory) for configure itself. I need to notify it in case resolv.conf is updated, 
for which I use script in update-libc.d/ as man page suggest. But after recent package update 
scripts in update-libc.d/* not executed if /etc/resolv.conf is not a symlink to /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf
 My /etc/resolv.conf is plain file with only one line : nameserver; 
 Commenting out line 153 in /etc/resolv.conf/update.d/libc fixed this problem for me.
