pgsql: libpq docs: be clearer about conninfo's 'hostaddr'

libpq docs: be clearer about conninfo's 'hostaddr'

The previous wording was a bit too terse, too vague on the subject of
'host' and 'hostaddr' in connection specifications, which has caused
people to waste time trying to conform to rules because of
misunderstanding the whole thing; this small change should make things
clearer.
