It is an external library you link your application to. To build first 
build and install the BSP you are using (see the --with-rtems-top 
setting). In my case I use this library with the pc586 BSP. Then ....

  $ /Users/chris/Development/rtems/src/libbsdport/configure \
     --host=i386-rtems4.10 \
     --with-rtems-top=/Users/chris/Development/rtems/build/4.10 \
     --prefix=/Users/chris/Development/rtems/build/4.10 \
     --enable-std-rtems-installdirs --enable-maintainer-mode \
  $ make all install

I use this in the RTL test program. The specific source to set up and 
use the library can be found here ...

I have not used 4.10.x recently how-ever I feel it should work because 
there has been no major changes in the network area on head.
