As far as I know, yes.  (there's some oddball HP releases that I can't
speak to -- I believe like VVOS (Virtual Vault), and perhaps some
others).  As far as the "mainstream" production OS's, it went from 11.00
to 11.11 (or 11i).  And yes, 11.11 is the first time getaddrinfo is

I'm assuming you can figure which is which  :-)

How much will it really matter?  I believe the key symbol when
compiling really is HAVE_GETADDRINFO.  I think BROKEN_GETADDRINFO is
only used to determine whether to undef HAVE_GETADDRINFO.  (If I read
what's going on in defines.h correctly)  In either case, that seems more
like a developer's call than an SA type (like myself).  I just have to
get it running. :-)
