There's probably a typo in your #include: replace the "," with a "."
and try again.

On my 8.2-STABLE system, /usr/include/arpa/inet.h exists,
and defines inet_aton() just fine:

% grep 'inet_aton' /usr/include/arpa/inet.h
#define inet_aton               __inet_aton
int              inet_aton(const char *, struct in_addr *);
