I just recently started trying to port a net app (a DHCP server) with Cygwin,
but I'm having all sorts of trouble with missing include files from net and
netinet. I assume this is due to the annoying diversity of ways the net API
is implemented between various UNIX flavors. So I got to wondering which
flavor is closest to cygwin? I've tried FreeBSD, OSF1, SUNOS4, and 386/BSD
makefiles with little success. Should I be trying Linux, AIX, Posix? Or is
cygwin so different that I'm really going to have to put in a lot of my own
#ifdefs and workarounds? I've checked the archives and found a few mentions
of this missing include problem, though with no solutions.
