What OS/2 build enviroment are you looking at that has getaddrinfo.h? 
Looking at the newest klibc06/gcc includes it doesn't exist.
Also I can not find any typedef for socklen_t in the headers. Closest is 
in sys/_types.h which has
typedef __uint32_t      __socklen_t;
which leaves me wondering if socklen_t shouldn't be typedef to uint32_t
