In reviewing the log you posted, I note that the problem is occurring 
in /usr/lib/libresolv.a, a non-INN library.  Is it possible that the 
server was upgraded from an earlier version of BSDI?

I ask because it's possible that some of your lib's may still be 
older versions (with newer header files, or vice versa) causing your 
dependancies to break.  I saw this type of error happen on an upgrade 
of one of my Linux systems.

The problem is not INN -- it compiles and runs just fine here.
