The functions the linker complains about are freeaddrinfo and 
getaddrinfo.  These functions are only used in sections inside #ifdef 
SUPPORT_IP6/#endif.  So it seems you have the symbol SUPPORT_IP6 defined 
somewhere.  You need to find out where that is defined.  My guess would 
be: the file config.h.  One possibility might be that you used the same 
sources on a non-Windows system where the file config.h was created? 
You may be able to remove the file config.h and rerun the cscript 
command.  That should recreate the file.  config.h is in the main 
directory (i.e. one up from the win32 directory where you need to build).
