One normally never checks for AF_INET.  It doesn't vary.  Either the
system has Berkeley networking support, in which case it will have AF_INET
since that stuff didn't vary between the various branches of Unix, or it
won't, in which case anything written to that API is going to break
horribly in so many different ways that there's no worthwhile checking one
can do and it's unlikely that someone will even try to compile normal
socket code on it in the first place.
