I think cpnet.c needs further review.  It will not work properly
on FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE, either.

#if defined (HAVE_MSG_NOSIGNAL)
#elif defined (HAVE_SO_NOSIGPIPE)
#error "No suitable flag found to ommit a SIGPIPE on signal errors with send()."

ret = send(fd, data, len, SOCKET_NOSIGNAL);

  HAVE_SO_NOSIGPIPE     true   0x0800

SO_NOSIGPIPE (0x0800) is set to SOCKET_NOSIGNAL and is used as an option
to send.  But SO_NOSIGPIPE is a socket level option which should be used
with setsockopt.  0x0800 used as an option to send will not have any
effect, or may have some unexpected effects.

Anyway, this is a GNU Classpath issue.  I will report a bug about this
to GNU Classpath.
