Right, i do support all interix versions in gentoo prefix.

I do :) the original patch didn't have HAVE_GETADDRINFO but #ifndef __INTERIX instead. i changed this exactly for this reason - to make it work on vista/7 with the "good" version. :)

After all, it is only a fallback. It will be used only on "dumb" platforms that are not supported at all now, and existing platforms won't be affected at all, as getaddrinfo() is a minimum requirement right now.
