(ITS#4537) Compilation failure on OSF1 v5.1

The compilation of servers/slapd/daemon.c fails with:

cc: Error: daemon.c, line 809: In this statement, a common type 
  could not be determined for the 2nd and 3rd operands 
  ("he->h_addr_list[i]" and "&in") of a conditional operator. (badcondit)
                        AC_MEMCPY( &((struct sockaddr_in *)sap[i])->sin_addr,


   The problem is "he->h_addr_list[i]" is char * while "&in" is struct in_addr

   The simple fix is to cast the former (whose type may depend on system include
file definitions) to the known type of teh latter.

<    he ? he->h_addr_list[i] : &in, sizeof(struct in_addr) );
>    he ? (struct in_addr *)he->h_addr_list[i] : &in, sizeof(struct in_addr) );
