That declaration should only be used if you have NO_INET_NTOP defined by
the Makefile. That is not defined by default for Solaris. Have you
specified it yourself, or are you using the autoconf script? If the
latter, I suspect its test for inet_ntop needs to be fixed.

Again, that should not be compiled at all unless you have NO_INET_NTOP
set. Fixing that should solve both of your problems.

Yes, this is a potential portability problem we've discussed before, but
literally nobody has ever complained. I suspect it's a combination of
many compilers accepting those arguments (e.g., clang is fine with it)
and people on exotic compilers accepting that "make CFLAGS=" is a
reasonable starting point (you can also put "CFLAGS = " into your
config.mak if you do not want to remember to include it on each make
invocation).

I do not usually see Makefiles peeking at LD_LIBRARY_PATH, which is for
runtime resolution. Do you need to set LDFLAGS in your environment (or
in config.mak)?
