    Log Message:
    Throw a more helpful exception when no nameservers specified/available

    My /etc/resolv.conf was wiped by Network Manager (gee, thanks), so
    ircd.js was throwing the following unhelpful exceptions when starting
    up:
    Feb 25 13:47:51 git jsexec[19108]: !JavaScript : uncaught exception: Unable to create any sockets
    Feb 25 13:47:51 git jsexec[19108]: !JavaScript : uncaught exception: Unable to create any sockets

    First, instead of throwing a string, throw an Error object so we can
    actually know where the exception ocurred. Please, everyone, throw Errors
    not Strings.

    Second, throw a different more helpful exception if there are no nameservers specified in the DNS constructor or configured on the system.
