this struct is mentioned in RFC 2553, but I don't know how many older
systems pre-date this RFC.

It looks like we could test for the struct with autoconf, and include
the example struct definition from RFC 2553 if necessary (since it is
intended to be backwards-compatible with the old sockaddr_in).

I don't have IPv6 set up correctly here at home, so I may not be the
best one to integrate this patch, though.
