Can you check in your config.h post-configure if "SANED_USES_AF_INDEP" is
defined or undefined?

If it is undefined, the error would seem to be straightforward, since at
least my struct in_addr (in netinet/in.h ) doesn't have any ss_family

/* Internet address.  */
typedef uint32_t in_addr_t;
struct in_addr
    in_addr_t s_addr;

The UNIX philosophy basically involves giving you enough rope to
hang yourself.  And then a couple of feet more, just to be sure.
