There are similar thoughts involving HPUX and a curiousity on how they ended
up in this mess... and how many possible libcurl users there are that use HPUX

But then I don't think putting curl_socklen_t in the curlbuild.h header for
mismatch check ability is a very big deal. If it can save a poor user from
getting into trouble, let's do it. I can't see that it will harm anyone.
