Thanks for clarification.

2) configure works correctly (HAVE_INET_ATON etc.). There is a inet_aton.c
in backend/port. But this one is included only in the backend tree. In
interfaces/libpq/Makefile isn't any reference to it. It should be included
into the Makefile like snprintf has been included.

3) -h doesn't help to start the postmaster. For clients I'm using -h anyway.
Should Unix domain sockets be excluded from postmaster.c as it has been done
for CYGWIN32 and QNX? In general it could be better to handle this problem
by a additional postmaster option.

There's a configure test for inet_aton, which does the right thing on this
sparc-sun-solaris2.5.1/gcc 2.8.1 (which doesn't have it either). Perhaps
remove the config.cache before reconfiguring? *shrug*

No kidding. I don't get this problem but the regression tests occasionally
fail with broken pipe messages, but everything goes fine when I use TCP/IP
explicitly (-h option to psql). I don't know much more about it either
though.

Besides the Unix socket issue this platform works and all the regression
tests pass.
