We already have a mechanism for this (`SOCKLEN_T') which should be used
instead.  On UNIX, configure probes and generates config.h with a #define
of SOCKLEN_T to `int' or `socklen_t' as appropriate.

The hand-written config.h.win32 erroneously had "#define SOCKLEN_T
socklen_t" (which previously didn't matter of course) so I had fixed
that and removed the typedef.  I suspect Mark hadn't updated to the new

I've doubled-checked that the SOCKLEN_T define is now correct and
reverted this change.  Mark: please make sure that you're using the
latest msvc build files and if the problem is still there let's work out
why this isn't working as intended...

Gah, this sort of issue crops up too often.  We really need a tinderbox
build with debug enabled to catch these (bug#54).  Perhaps once 1.0 is
