This routine returns all of the protocol addresses of this host.

Compile-time configuration flags will indicate which protocol family addresses might be returned. The *addr argument is filled in to point to an array of address pointers, terminated by a NULL pointer. All the storage pointed to is allocated and should be freed by the caller with krb5_free_addresses when no longer needed.
