apparently.  Perhaps a look at the related header files would help.
For instance on Solaris, that's defined in /usr/include/netdb.h,

struct  hostent {
        char    *h_name;        /* official name of host */
        char    **h_aliases;    /* alias list */
        int     h_addrtype;     /* host address type */
        int     h_length;       /* length of address */
        char    **h_addr_list;  /* list of addresses from name server */
#define h_addr  h_addr_list[0]  /* address, for backward compatiblity */

Seeing a "#define" there gives the impression that someone might have
decided to break compatibility by removing it on some other system.
