GCC 2.95-Mingw32: winsock.h is not C++ enabled

The winsock.h file from the mingw32 version of GCC 2.95 is not C++ 
enabled. You get link time errors because the names for the winsock 
functions are mangled. The solution is to include the usual C11 enabling 
stuff in the header file, e.g.

near the beginning of the file:

#ifdef __cplusplus
extern "C" {
#endif /* __cplusplus */

near the end:

#ifdef __cplusplus
#endif /* __cplusplus */
