Here are my comments on the changes:

 + The Makefile.in changes look very safe and needed.

 + The install-sh change to the dsttmp value looks good.

 ? I have a question about the portability of the u_FOO -> uFOO_t
   changes.  The former is the BSD syntax for the unsigned FOO typedefs,
   and the latter is what, POSIX?  The changes work on Linux, at least.
   Perhaps we should just make these changes and try it out on the
   compile farm.

 + The inet_pton changes look right to make the code consistent.  The
   only possible glitch might be a system that has a prototype for
   inet_pton() but not the library code -- if the prototype conflicts,
   the compile would fail (there are ways to work around this, but let's
   worry about that if we actually find some weird system with this
