I suppose it should test inet_aton, which is apparently why
_SVID_SOURCE is needed in the first place.

But it's probably not reasonable to demand from you to clean this up,
since there's no way knowing which ancient and broken systems may need
it and so on.

Anyway, why not define both _SVID_SOURCE and _DEFAULT_SOURCE? Could
work. From what I understand, the purpose is removing the warning that
is printed with recent glibc.
