Further info: same thing happens on Solaris 7 (which also doesn't have
getaddrinfo at all so also uses fake-getaddrinfo.c).  Adding some
debugging to sshd, I get:

debug1: private host key: #2 type 2 DSA
debug3: setting up socket, ai_family 2 ai_socktype 0 ai_protocol 0
socket: Protocol not supported
Cannot bind any address.

How about setting "ai->ai_socktype = SOCK_STREAM;" to malloc_ai()?  This
works for me.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
