Apparently /usr/include/resolv.h misses the definition for
sockaddr_in, which is defined in <cygwin/in.h>
Have no clue why it suddenly fails. Anyone else?
These headers didn't change for years...
Which file is supposed to include cygwin/in.h? I found nothing.
Its an upstream issue. According to the resolver man page,
netinet/in.h should be included before resolv.h.
I think this is correct. What is buggy is the autoconf test which is
just including resolv.h and not netinet/in.h to compile the test exe.
This applies to the default test when calling
Workaround is to use s.th. like this in configure.ac:
AC_CHECK_HEADERS([arpa/nameser.h netinet/in.h sys/socket.h sys/types.h])
AC_CHECK_HEADERS([resolv.h], , ,
# include <sys/types.h>
# include <netinet/in.h> /* inet_ functions / structs */
# include <arpa/nameser.h> /* DNS HEADER struct */
# include <sys/socket.h> /* DNS HEADER struct */
Anyway, there should be a macro which provides this functionity.
