Unless someone submitted patches since the 2.0.32-alpha tarball last
week. I don't think Win32/nt works especially as it relies on
sockaddr_in for the mpm_winnt. I figured and fixed this, this weekend when
I wanted too see if the IPv6 support for Apache on NT worked or not.
It did compile but without IPv6 support. After some hours of changing
things, enabling getaddrinfo() etc. I suddenly had a IPv6 enabled
mpm_winnt version of Apache 2.0.32. I will be cleaning up the diff tonight
and fixing the fact that IPv6 addresses get logged quite weirdly, which
is a weird offset effect. You'll probably get the diff tomorrow morning CET ;)


PS: What makes this so cool is the fact that IIS doesn't have IPv6 support (yet, unless someone
has a superduper development version somewhere ;)
