[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] IPv6 support for mingw32

Without this patch mplayer build would fail but ffmpeg is fine,
because currently ffmpeg's configure disables IPv6 on Windows. There's
a tradeoff however, that the built binaries can't run on Windows 2000
or older, as getaddrinfo() and freeaddrinfo() are available as part of
the OS since Windows XP. It's possible to run IPv6 on Windows
2000/ME/98 with IPv6 Technology Preview installed but that requires
inclusion of wspiapi.h that isn't shipped in MinGW due to license

Beauty is truth,
While truth is beauty.
