You get the error because line 21 in config-io.h reads #define
<winsock.h> (umm... obviously).  That would certainly be easy to fix,
but you don't really want winsock at all sice Cygwin32 has "unix"
sockets.  A quick and easy way to solve the problem is to add the
follwing lines to ~/config/config-hacks.h:

 * Cygnus32 has both winsock.h and sys/socket.h which
 * will give us problems
#if defined(HAVE_WINSOCK_H) && defined(HAVE_SYS_SOCKET_H)
