htonl()/htons()/ntohl()/ntohs() can be defined by including
<arpa/inet.h>, <netinet/in.h>, or <sys/param.h> (the first two are
POSIX-required, the final one is temporary until the base system no
long requires it).  Previously these functions were leaked to all
sorts different headers.  Weak aliases exist for these functions so
even if software depended on, for instance ntohl() being prototyped
<sys/types.h>, this should not be fatal.

There's a few small issues with the prototypes which can lead to some
compiler diagnostics (this should be fixed by Sunday).

If someone can provide a compiler error and source file, I can
figure out what the problem is.
