What application are you porting here? This is a mailing list for the
ht://Dig search engine only. If that's the application in question,
please send in the complete output from ./configure and make, as well
as information on which version you're compiling, and what patches,
if any, you've made. If you're talking about some other application,
I'm afraid you have the wrong list.

In any case, it sounds like something is overriding a header file
definition in a way that's incompatible with what /usr/include/netinet/in.h
