No, I don't need -lwsock32 when I have #undef HAVE_SOCKETS in configure.h

Just adding #if HAVE_SOCKETS in gnubg.c (as is done in the other sources)
leaves the option open to use or not use winsock at this time.
There is no option now.
I have no problem going for the 'no option'. It's not a big deal, but it is
not a big deal adding twice #if HAVE_SOCKETS either, is it??
