Debian package build problems with 2.0.9 (from git)

It looks like the newer libgc is headed for unstable, and I'm working on
the Debian packages for 2.0.9, where I've run into a couple of problems.

The first might be a problem caused by my packaging, but in case not,
the build from git fails because doc/ref/effective-version.texi doesn't
exist when it tries to build  Here's how I fixed that for
now in doc/ref/

  -guile.texi: libguile-autoconf.texi
  +guile.texi: effective-version.texi libguile-autoconf.texi

The second problem is that the net-db.test is failing:

  Running net-db.test
  unexpected error code: -11 "System error"
  FAIL: net-db.test: getaddrinfo: no name

But it looks like at least on my current (Debian unstable) system,
that may be the normal behavior.  This program:

  #include <errno.h>
  #include <netdb.h>
  #include <stdio.h>
  #include <string.h>

  main(int argc, char **argv)
    struct addrinfo c_hints, *c_result;

    memset(&c_hints, 0, sizeof (c_hints));
    const int err = getaddrinfo ("does-not-exist",
    if (err == 0)
      freeaddrinfo (c_result);

    printf("err: %d\n", err);
    printf("errno: %d\n", errno);

    return 0;

Produces this output:

  $ ./foo
  err: -11
  errno: 2

So I'm wondering if there's a problem with my test code, my system, or
if the test might need another exception here:

            (and (or (= errcode EAI_NONAME)
                     (and (defined? 'EAI_NODATA)  ; GNU extension
                          (= errcode EAI_NODATA))
                     (= errcode EAI_AGAIN)
