Looks identical except for using in_addr_t and INADDR_NONE.  Seems fine to 
me; I guess there's a question as to whether there are machines without 
these values; changing it will certainly uncover any such machines when 
people try to build.

I suggest this as a post- change though; it may accidentally break 
things which have worked.

In the modular tree, we can test for in_addr_t and INADDR_NONE and use them
when present, and avoid them where missing all automatically.
