Even if you get this error with the winsock library fixed, configure
will probably fail for different reasons. There is probably no current
Windows configuration, exept with cygwin, where the parallel package
can be installed.

The main reason is that even the functions for local parallel
execution rely on the 'fork' method to create processes, which isn't
available in Windows.
