First, I'll try to check as much as possible wsock32.dll versions as possible 
-- especially the earliest one --  to see if any of them are missing this entry. 

Next, it's certanly possible to use raw LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress API to achieve
the same thing plus gracefuuly handling the worst case.

One more way is to borow it -- glibc contains quite compact and independent one -- 
though I'm not quite sure about cygwin policy in this respect.
