Hm, maybe this has something to do with that getnameinfo()
and getaddrinfo() are macros on _WIN32_WINNT <= 0x0500?
Look in your <ws2tcpip.h>:

// Unless the build environment is explicitly targeting only
// platforms that include built-in getaddrinfo() support, include
// the backwards-compatibility version of the relevant APIs.
#if !defined(_WIN32_WINNT) || (_WIN32_WINNT <= 0x0500)
#include <wspiapi.h>

Yang Tse may have the details; he did the change.
