I have confirmed that this is a bug in sphinxsearch.  mysql 5.5.15 and
above removed a codepath that SphinxSE was using to do name resolution,
and the re-implementation of it that SphinxSE uses could never have

The work-around is to use an IP address (rather than a hostname like
localhost) in the sphinx:// URL that rt-setup-fulltext-index prompts
for.  Alternately, the two attached patches can be applied to the
storage/sphinx/ directory.

The issue has been reported to sphinxsearch as bug 1815.  RT may work
around this issue in a future release by defaulting to suggesting instead of localhost when running on MySQL 5.5.
