now that gmerlin seems to apporach the next release, this becomes an
issue for use again.

however, in an older email of mine i discovered:

so we could just filter the lib/os_inet_aton.c out, patch the MakefileS
to not build this file and be done
(looking at the offending file it is totally protected by "ifndef
HAVE_INET_ATON", and i think we can safely assume that we _do have_
inet_aton, no?

so i think we are approaching a solution....
