In fact the most recent rev of the POSIX spec just came out and
gethostbyname() etc have actually been dropped from it completely

I think my preference would be for switching the code to using
getaddrinfo et al, and adding autoconf-shims to implement those
functions in terms of the old APIs if we need to. (Cleaner than
lots of ifdefs.)
