Implementing the full getaddrinfo_a interface would be a bigger job than
just the simple bits that Emacs uses (signal handling, etc), though.

If the Gnulib module supports just the part of getaddrinfo_a that Emacs needs, that should be good enough. Lots of Gnulib modules implement only the "important" parts of the portable interface, where "important" means "needed by GNU apps that use Gnulib", a definition that can change with time as usage grows.

If all this is too much trouble, then just patching Emacs is OK too. We can worry about libraryizing a getaddrinfo_a substitute later.
