I wonder, don't you usually do

    c_af = (su_cs_find_c(pgp->pg_ca, ':') != NIL) ? AF_INET6 : AF_INET;
    if(inet_pton(c_af, pgp->pg_ca,
             (c_af == AF_INET ? S(void*,&c_sip.v4)
             : S(void*,&c_sip.v6))) != 1){

Problem (for me regarding inet_pton(3)) is more that this beast
fails for things like, it expects properly

this as a bug, even though POSIX says "standard text
interpretation" --- but that surely is decimal and then
"compression" (to use the term for IPv4) should be applicable or
