ifcur = iflist ;

Your declaration of struct ifaddrs* might be throwing off the compiler when it comes to a struct ifaddrs object and a pointer to that type. The argument to getifaddrs is a pointer to pointer to struct ifaddrs so use &ifcur instead of &iflist and since freeifaddrs takes a unilevel pointer use ifcur.

struct ifaddrs iflist, *ifcur
ifcur = &iflist;

if (getifaddrs (&ifcur) < 0)
	printf ("* Erreur getifaddrs ! \n") ;
