The only recommended way to get an IP address into a apr_sockaddr_t is to call 
  apr_sockaddr_info_get(), which is not a direct replacement for 

Maybe the answer is "don't do that," since you can't do exactly what 
apr_sockaddr_ip_set() did.  But apr_sockaddr_info_get() can be used to achieve 
the same goal.
