Indeed, so I changed it to:

  intf.if_mask = prefix( sin_addr->sin_addr.s_addr);

which seems to match what the "old" code was doing: still blowing
up though.

I believe that the NetBSD getifaddrs-based loop should still get
the same info as the IPv4 code and stick it in the opal_list.

It may just be that my conversion from the IPv6 block/structs to
an IPv4 "version" is missing something out.

To be honest, I was surprised it compiled at all!
