Jeff Garzik reported the same problem on Mandrake, and it is now fixed
in CVS.  (We were calling AC_CHECK_FUNC rather than AC_CHECK_FUNCS,
which is *obviously* completely different :-)

Anyhow, Friedrisch you can either update from CVS or the unpacked
source tree, or just manually insert

#define HAVE_INET_NTOP 1
#define HAVE_INET_PTON 1

into config.h after running ./configure.

Let us know.
