I've now tried with 5.8.0, 5.8.1, 5.8.5, 5.8.6, 5.8.7 and 5.8.8 and they 
all build and test OK for me (all using apache-1.3.34).

The Changes file says that /D _WINSOCK2API_ was added by Randy in 
1.21_01 "for 1.3.9/win32", so maybe older apache's need it, or perhaps 
it was just cautionary?

Can you remember why you added it, Randy?

What's the oldest version of apache that we need to be concerned to support?
