Yes, but are you sure this is a correct fix for this issue?
Do you suggests to track FreeBSD kernel's netinet/in.h and append
everything missed in libc's netinet/in.h to bits/in.h?
This may be correct from tecnical point of view, but from organization
one this will be a headache to keep them synchronized. I think that
freebsd code should be brought to system with freebsd-kernel-headers,
but you know this better, of course.
