The only idea I've had is to force MinGW porters to put some files in
a special directory, like a sys/socket.h that includes winsock2.h.

But that would go against the idea of testing for features instead of
treating some platforms different.  For now I think we should modify
every M4 code to take mingw into consideration.  This approach seems
possible without too much changes: GnuTLS is close to working without
modifications under mingw now.

Ok to install the patch?  You're mentioned as the origin of the file.
