i'm porting an application from Linux to NetBSD. The author uses
unix domain socket as well as ip sockets. He uses getaddrinfo in both 
cases. While this seems to be no problem under Linux it fails under NetBSD
as PF_UNIX (PF_LOCAL) is explicitly not supported under NetBSD (PF_LOCAL is
#ifdef'ed 0 in getaddrinfo.c). Is there a specific reason for this? 
Does PF_LOCAL violate some standard or is it simply not yet implemented?
