And now http://www.sra.co.jp/people/m-kasahr/getaddrinfo/getaddrinfo-1.6.tar.gz
has been released.  From the release news:

| Major changes in release 1.6
| * Support for RFC3493.
|   Add `sin6_flowinfo' and `sin6_scope_id' to `struct sockaddr_in6'.
| * Check sizes of `in_port_t' and `sa_family_t' strictly.

According to Kasahara, the author, the second change is supposed to enable
some unusual code like:

	struct sockaddr_in addr4;
	struct sockaddr_in6 addr6;
	memcpy(&(addr4.sin_port), &(addr6.sin6_port),

Although kaffe will not need this,  I would like to respect the
author's will.  In order to enable this change,  "configure"
must be regenerated.  I tried to run autoconf but my autoconf
was too old to accept the scripts.

Dalibor,  could you update the files?

Thank you.
