	The inet_aton on Solaris 8 is (intentionally)
	hidden away in a library, so people won't use
	it.  It's presumably being replaced with Stevens'
	function that does both IPv5 and IPv6...

	If I recollect the discussion properly, you can
	just put in a constant and not call the function
	to create it from a string...
