> Seg fault due to missing NULL return value check of getprotobyname

> There are several places proton-c makes calls to getprotobyname and 
> dereferences the return value without checking for NULL first. Documentation 
> for getprotobyname indicates it can return NULL if there was an error. We 
> have seen seg faults in testing where getprotobyname returned NULL.
> Attached is a patch that adds some simple error checking to the 
> getprotobyname call.
