Well I can tell you that the C API is the more heavily used API of the 
two (c/java) inside Yahoo, it's also the basis of the python and perl 
bindings. The issue here is that no one seems to have tried it on 
windows in quite some time. I believe Cygwin 1.7 (currently in beta) 
does have getaddrinfo support btw (I have not tried that).

MinGW sounds like a good goal, if you'd like to create a jira and 
provide some patches we'd be happy to work with you to achieve.
