Hiya...I've tried to compile 2.8.5 and 2.8.6.rel4 on macOS (Tiger current patches and XCode) and it goes kaput in the build:

That was a known issue in 2.8.5 which is supposed to have been
fixed in 2.8.6:

2005-10-17 (2.8.6dev.14)
* use h_addr_list[0] rather than h_addr in HTTCP.c for POSIX compatibility

.../../../WWW/Library/Implementation/HTTCP.c:1329: error: 'struct hostent' has no member named 'h_addr'
make[1]: *** [HTTCP.o

This is a listing for 2.8.5, which has
            memcpy((void *)&soc_in->sin_addr, phost->h_addr, phost->h_length);
at line 1329.

What is the problem you are having with 2.8.6?

....I can't take the time now to contribute and am not that hip to MacOS as a C developer (yet) but I'd be glad to be a test monkey. Please feel free to contact me re: MacOS testing.
