I think it's ok as it is now.  Regardless of the above SUSv3 stuff 
I've checked the very same situation on Linux and on Linux it's no
problem to call connect again (I've tested on glibc 2.3.2).  The
first call returns EINTR, the second call blocks as usual and returns
the same way as our current code does (in my test with ECONNREFUSED).

It's a bit weird that Linux behaves different than the SUSv3 description
suggests, though.  Hmm.
