but HAVE_SYS_SOCKET_H is neither defined in the test programme nor on
the command line of gcc's invocation. So sys/socket.h is not included,
sockaddr and sockaddr_storage are not declared and gcc complains:

It follows a line AC_CHECK_HEADERS_ONCE(sys/socket.h),
which defines HAVE_SYS_SOCKET_H is sys/socket.h is present.
If this still happens, I guess your system is misconfigured somehow.
