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)
Well, I deleted the inet_aton() code from os.c yesterday:
And also os.c can be kicked out as well since it contains only a poll()
which is available in glibc.
I think just patching 2 files out of Makefile.am should already do the trick.
