Metze,  I should have tested this more which is why I
replied to ignore it.  But the background is that on AIX 5.2
struct sockaddr_storage has a member named ss_family,
but on AIX 5.3, the member is name __ss_family so I'm getting
all kinds of compile errors.  The autoconf test was to check
for a valid ss_family member.

But the problem is that the HAVE_SA_SS_FAMILY macro is never
defined when the test are run to the autoconf test always

Yeah.  You're right.  I'll work on it some more.

cheers, jerry
