http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/basedefs/net_if.h.html#tag_13_30
doesn't mention any prerequisite headers for <net/if.h>.  Furthermore,
looking at each of the functions in that header, none of them call out a
prerequisite:
http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/if_freenameindex.html#
http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/if_indextoname.html#
http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/if_nameindex.html#
http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/if_nametoindex.html#

If a header cannot be used in isolation, then POSIX would call out
multiple headers.  For comparison, here's a case where POSIX 2008 _does_
call out multiple headers:
http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/creat.html

creat() cannot use the S_IRUSR and other constants for its mode_t
argument unless you also include <sys/stat.h>, since <fcntl.h> was not
required to be self-contained on that front (there's talk underway about
getting that fixed in the next version of POSIX, but that's another
story... http://austingroupbugs.net/view.php?id=591)
