Miscellaneous changes to headers. The important one is that if <winsock2.h> is available then that replaces all of the usual socket- and network database-related headers (which are not available in Windows). Thus you end up with code like this:

#include <sys/socket.h>
#include <netdb.h>
#include <netinet/in.h>
#include <winsock2.h>

  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 :-)

Yes, wsockcompat looks particularly useful. Might copy it for the XDR implementation.
