configure checks for netdb.h and sets HAVE_NETDB_H in wwwconf.h.
Please, check if this has worked on your system. Look into config.cache
(in libs/libwww) if HAVE_NETDB_H is not set.

wwwsys.h includes netdb.h if HAVE_NETDB_H is set. Is there some .c file
includes HTDNS.h without including wwwsys.h before? You somehow have
missed to send the actual error message...

I regulary compile libwww on my linux (non-redhat system) without any
