 	Hello Steve,

 	Unfortunately the issue with this is that not all systems provide 
stdlib.h.  I added an autoconf confgure script in config/ (run during the 
make includes phase) to try to figure out this stuff on a per system basis 
in v1.7.  John Wehle provided some of these stdlib.h includes for FreeBSD 
in 1.7, prompting the addition of this simple autoconf script in config/. 
I will need to go through the patch, wrapping the #includes with:

 	#if defined(HAVE_STDLIB_H)

 	same for string.h/strings.h .

 	The one thing I'm not sure about is the socklen_t changes... How 
portable is this?  It seems like every system has a different idea about 
it :)  Maybe I need an autoconf rule to detect when this typedef is 
available as well?

 	Ok, Thanks.
