It would also need functionality added to connect and possibly some other functions

Per the function documentation for bind, only  port number is supported, so works as documented, but would be a good feature request.

It is not possible to bind an AF_UNIX socket as UNIX-Domain sockets have a path instead of a port Number.

Following code gives a failure caused on no scalar integer as port to bind:

sock = socket(AF_UNIX, SOCK_STREAM);
bind(sock, "/tmp/octave.sock");

If I find the time I maybe dig into it myself, but the probability for that is quiet low.
