configure fails to set HAVE_SOCKLEN_T

Building on SuSE 10.2 failed with conflicting types for socklen_t in os_support.h. It appears that HAVE_SOCKLEN_T is not getting set in config.h, even though socklen_t is defined in <unistd.h>. This gives the following error:

In file included from os_support.c:26:
os_support.h:32: error: conflicting types for 'socklen_t'
/usr/include/unistd.h:243: error: previous declaration of 'socklen_t' was here

After hard-coding "#define HAVE_SOCKLEN_T", the build is successful.

P.S. I'm not sure if it's expecting the glibc headers to have defined HAVE_SOCKLEN_T, but "grep -r HAVE_SOCKLEN_T /usr/include/" doesn't find anything.

I just committed socklen_t detection to configure.
