It looks like Python expects the Windows build environment to not have
inet_pton or inet_ntop. It does, at least on Visual C++ 2008 Express
Edition, but they're not in the WS2_32.DLL. An examination of the
constants in the relevant header makes it look like Visual C++ is
building with Vista as the minimum target, as presumably the Vista
version of the DLL has those functions. Sadly I can't find out why it
is building for Vista (I'm on XP SP2) but will look into it further.
