Prior to this change when a server returned a socks5 connect error then
curl would parse the destination address:port from that data and show it
to the user as the destination:

curld -v --socks5 10.0.3.1:1080 http://google.com:99
* SOCKS5 communication to google.com:99
* SOCKS5 connect to IPv4 172.217.12.206 (locally resolved)
* Can't complete SOCKS5 connection to 253.127.0.0:26673. (1)
curl: (7) Can't complete SOCKS5 connection to 253.127.0.0:26673. (1)

That's incorrect because the address:port included in the connect error
is actually a bind address:port (typically unused) and not the
destination address:port. This fix changes curl to show the destination
information that curl sent to the server instead:

curld -v --socks5 10.0.3.1:1080 http://google.com:99
* SOCKS5 communication to google.com:99
* SOCKS5 connect to IPv4 172.217.7.14:99 (locally resolved)
* Can't complete SOCKS5 connection to 172.217.7.14:99. (1)
curl: (7) Can't complete SOCKS5 connection to 172.217.7.14:99. (1)
curld -v --socks5-hostname 10.0.3.1:1080 http://google.com:99
* SOCKS5 communication to google.com:99
* SOCKS5 connect to google.com:99 (remotely resolved)
* Can't complete SOCKS5 connection to google.com:99. (1)
curl: (7) Can't complete SOCKS5 connection to google.com:99. (1)
