It seems that there is no test for whether <sys/un.h> exists, and thus setting
HAVE_SYS_UN_H never occurs.  The test for AF_LOCAL uses tests/unixsock.c which
uses that manifest constant to determine whether to include <sys/un.h>.  The
program does not compile without that include file, thus the test fails.
