However, now we've actually got both solution alternatives applied, which 
is kind of redundant. Binaries built with --target-os=mingw32-prexp have 
IPv6 functionality on >= XP thanks to the GetProcAddress hooks in 
os_support.c, but the ones built with --target-os=mingw32 aren't 
compatible with pre-XP versions (without any real added benefit, except 
that there's a bit less overhead on the getaddrinfo calls).

Feel free to sort out the opinions on if one of the solutions 
(GetProcAddress or check_func_headers getaddrinfo) perhaps should be 
removed, I'm happy as long as either one is available.
