dnl Check for socklen_t: historically on BSD it is an int, and in
dnl POSIX 1g it is a type of its own, but some platforms use different
dnl types for the argument to getsockopt, getpeername, etc. So we
dnl have to test to find something that will work.
dnl On mingw32, socklen_t is in ws2tcpip.h ('int'), so we try to find
dnl it there first. That file is included by gnulib's socket_.h, which
dnl all users of this module should include. Cygwin must not include
dnl ws2tcpip.h.
