[distcc] Compiling DistCC under MinGW with MSYS

Has anyone here successfully compiled distcc with MinGW?  When I run
the configure script under MSYS, I get the following error:

checking for socklen_t... no
checking for socklen_t equivalent... configure: error: Cannot find a
type to use          in place of socklen_t

>From what I understand, MinGW implements socklen_t but the WinSock
library needs to be linked in.  Has anyone patched the necessary files
to make this happen?
