i don't see the need for that, as this file is only needed if and only
if the system does not provide an inet_aton itself (currently i can only
check on linux (not kFreeBSD or hurd), and libc6 does come with an
implementation.

so the file is not needed, and no replacement is needed.
we need not ship the file, and be save and happy.

which still holds true, as in this case we won't even need to exclude an
offending file, but just take upstream as it is.


the main problem i do see now is, that the offending code has been
copied into a separate file but not moved (it still exists in a cre
component that we cannot exclude)
