No trouble... The current CVS compiles (with a warning), links, and
runs. The warning given is:

cc: Warning:
les/getaddrinfo.c, line 407: In this statement, the referenced type of
the point
er value "hostname" is const, but the referenced type of the target of
this assi
gnment is not. (notconstqual)
                if (inet_pton(gai_afdl[i].a_af, hostname, pton)) {

which can be fixed by declaring the second argument to inet_pton as
const char* instead of char* in the two occurences of inet_pton in
