to quote the msdn documentation:

The freeaddrinfo function was added to the Ws2_32.dll on Windows XP and later.
When the Wspiapi.h include file is added, the freeaddrinfo function is defined to the WspiapiFreeAddrInfo inline function in the Wspiapi.h file.
the question is how do you detect that + #include <Wspiapi.h> /* for getaddrinfo, freeaddrinfo */ is actually available ? What about older version, WinCE ...
I guess this need some expert review (I'm not one for any Win stuff !)
me neither, i just quote msdn :)

Declared in Ws2tcpip.h on Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP. Declared in Ws2tcpip.h on Windows 2000, Windows NT, and Windows Me/98/95; include Wspiapi.h.

so, it says nothing about wince, but everything else from msft seems to have it.

What are you compiling with? The use of getaddrinfo actually came about due to an issue with win98.

I'm curious to know how HAVE_GETADDRINFO ended up getting defined.

from a quick grep, this seems to be defined in include/wsockcompat.h
that should be no surprise, as getaddrinfo is (afaik) actually defined in Ws2_32.dll on my build box; the error i had originally occured when _linking_.
however, that dll is only available on NT 5.1 (XP) or newer.

cl.exe says:

Microsoft (R) 32-bit C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 14.00.50727.762 for 80x86

not that i have any clue about the setup, i just type "build" and fix what breaks :)
actually i'm compiling on a newer version of NT, let me see, it says:
Windows Server 2003 R2

but the result should run on win 2000 as well, which does not have the Ws2_32.dll; according to msdn "Wspiapi.h" should work in that case as well. hmm, maybe i should test if it actually runs, if i can find a win 2000 box around here...
