I am trying to merge the windows_port branch with trunk and I have some
First, getaddrinfo seems to be supported on Win32 platforms only since
Windows XP. So I can compile binaries for Win32 but we will loose Win
NT/2000/98 compatibility here.
Second, it seems that inet_ntop is supported only since Windows Vista.
Which remove Windows XP from the compatibility list.

Of course we can try to provide equivalent functions but is this commit
really worth the extra work ? Moreover, what will be the impact of this
commit on other old systems ?
Maybe we could simply revert this commit to avoid breakage.
