I think you mean

val ~= val;

Not sure.  The manual says TCP_CORK is not compatible with TCP_NODELAY.

I think it would be easier to read if TCP_NOPUSH wasn't redefined. 
Corking is abstracted here anyway.  Might as well put all the platform
specific stuff was in this function.

For instance:

void set_cork() (conn *c, int val) {
   if (c->is_corked == val) return;
   c->is_corked = val;
#if defined(TCP_NOPUSH)
   setsockopt(c->sfd, IPPROTO_TCP, TCP_NOPUSH, &val, sizeof(val));
   val ~= val;
   setsockopt(c->sfd, IPPROTO_TCP, TCP_NODELAY, &val, sizeof(val));
#if defined(TCP_CORK) && !defined(TCP_NOPUSH)
   setsockopt(c->sfd, IPPROTO_TCP, TCP_CORK, &val, sizeof(val));
