Well, this crutch breaks compilation on RedHat 7.3 and RHEL 3:

ftpfs.c:97: conflicting types for `socklen_t'
/usr/include/bits/socket.h:36: previous declaration of `socklen_t'

Attached crutch makes this error even ;-) and allow compilation for these distros.
But I am more than sure it breaks compilation for everything but Linux.
Can you test it?

Anyway think AC_CHECK_TYPE(socklen_t, int) is more common.

BTW, maybe it's not right to break compilation on some platforms due to AIX 
warning fix?
