Re: More CVS Makefile.vc6 Issues...

I've gone through some testing with my app, as well as some others
using wxCurl. The whole winsock2 thing is becomming an issue. Even
defining _WINSOCKAPI_ in the derivative apps causes issues. Weird
compile errors and such for anyone using Win32.

I think if it isn't too big a deal, we should go back to Guenter's
suggestion of:

--- multi.h.orig Wed Mar 24 23:53:42 2004
+++ multi.h Fri Sep 03 19:26:22 2004
@@ -52,7 +52,9 @@
#endif

#if defined(WIN32) && !defined(__GNUC__) || defined(__MINGW32__)
+#if !(defined(_WINSOCKAPI_) || defined(_WINSOCK_H))
#include <winsock2.h>
+#endif
#else

/* HP-UX systems version 9, 10 and 11 lack sys/select.h and so does oldish

Which seemed to work for me and for others...I don't know how well it
fits into the larger CURL app though. I'd like to get this fixed
though, because the Win32 folks are big wxWidgets users, and right now
it's toughest for them.

Thanks for the help.

Cheers.
Casey
