Thanks for the report anyway, as I discovered two things: (1) the code
for replacing a broken inet_aton() was not quite right (it should have
been more like the code for replacing a broken inet_ntoa()), and (more
importantly) (2) no code in rsync these days even uses inet_aton() or
inet_ntoa(), so the REPLACE_INET_xTOx configure checks and the
replacement functions in lib/compat.c could just be removed.
