strace-4.2; patch for uw7.1.1

Some systems don't have nfs/mount.h (boo!) (looks like SCO have decided
nobody needs the mount stuff.  I hope Caldera are more open).

UW7 changed the format of socket addresses, making the sa_family one
byte long and sticking a one byte sa_length just in front of it.  That's
why the "x" network routines (xconnect, xbind, xsendto and so on) take
a version number - to tell 'em what format socket addresses they get,
thus allowing backwards compatability.

Here are the patches to cope with these amusing things.
