  I looked quickly how it's dome in libxml2, there we use _WINSOCKAPI_
as the define to select the Windows networking API (apparently a
standard define of Microsoft) and we have a wsockcompat.h which 
does some remapping of the BSD interfaces onto winsock.h/winsock2.h .
Lets keep things simple as you did with gnulib and if people want to
compile on the various MS compilers, well we take patches :-)
