The hard coded values should be okay because they are standard, for 
example RFC 2292 defines IPPROTO_IPV6 as 41, TCP is protocol number 6.

Is the #undef sun really needed? It otherwise looks good to me. We can 
fix up the very long lines at some point to get it consistent with the 
other code in this area.
