How about:

make <sys/ansi.h>, have it include <machine/ansi.h>.  Make all users
of <machine/ansi.h> use <sys/ansi.h> instead.

In <sys/ansi.h>, define _BSD_SOCKLEN_T_, like <machine/ansi.h> does
with its various types.  Then in each file that needs socklen_t, do:

typedef _BSD_SOCKLEN_T_ socklen_t;

Would that work?
