Yes but it's only a stub I wrote (hence the comment about "don't need rpc to actually _work_"). It will almost certainly leave any software that uses getifaddrs crippled. 
And no, I' haven't tested what builds with it. Probably nothing in its present state (I don't have a proper header yet).
Also, I have mentioned once or twice that getifaddrs, when implemented, will require (BSD) <sys/queue.h> TAILQ_* macros. If any header contains copyrightable material, it's this one: hundreds of LOCs, implementing linked lists in macros.

HTH,
