BRO_DNS_FAKE was historically for controlling how/if DNS constantns in
scripts get resolved (i.e., set[add] = { www.google.com }). The
lookup_* functions came later and might fail to take that into

Also, I'm wondering if our test suite should set BRO_DNS_FAKE
generally. It's not great because it changes quite a bit what's
happening; on the other hand doing all the lookups every time the
suite runs isn't ideal either.
