netinet/ip.h != netinet/in.h

netinet/in.h is perfectly usable; ip.h defines struct ip, the IP
options, IPTOS values, struct ip_timestamp, ippseudo and some TTL & MSS
constants.  On a Linux box, mostly the same except that it's "struct
timestamp", no "ip_" prefix.

I wondered why this was needed so just did a build with the include
completely removed.

Everything built just fine.  It appears to be superfluous.
