That's interesting: POSIX says it must be defined in unistd.h, and that is included before sock.h in all the C files AFAICS (and this is why all the Unix-alike platforms tested before release do compile that module).

It's a bug in RH9 (there seems to be no 9.0), and that is maintained by Fedora Legacy -- do they have an update?
