I stumbled about the same problem when porting OpenSSH. Quoting
the description of the patch when I sent it to the openssh-dev

-- snip --
This is necessary because FreeMiNT expects 0-terminated path names
in sun_path and does a sanity check on namelen passed to bind().
This sanity check rejects namelen >= sizeof(struct sockaddr_un),
because namelen should not include the trailing 0 of the path

I've solved this by defining AF_UNIX_ADDRLEN in defines.h, to
sizeof(struct sockaddr_un) for all systems expect FreeMiNT, which
will get (sizeof(struct sockaddr_un) - 1)

In the code, connect() and bind() for AF_UNIX sockets will then
-- snap --

Thus, replace the occurences of sizeof(addr) in the calls to
connect() and bind() in the code you quoted with (sizeof(addr) -
