Summary: Cannot compile 7.15.1 using VS 6.0 SP6

Initial Comment:
Compilation of version 7.15.1 fails on Windows WP
using Visual Studio 6.0 SP6.

This is due to the changes in ftp.c and tftp.c in
order to handle IPV6. I altered sockaddr.h in order
to make the build succeed, but I am not sure that
this will be correct in all cases.

My version of sockaddr.h will be loaded.

If you are using Visual Studio 6.0 SP6 you should also be
using Microsoft's Platform SDK. _Many_ header files are
updated, corrected and modified from the ones shiped with
VS 6.0.

In your particular case, visual studio 6.0 winsock2.h
lacks the definition for struct sockaddr_storage which is
correctly declared in winsock2.h from Microsoft Platform
SDK - February 2003 Edition.

In any case if you don't wish to use the header files from
Platform SDK, you can comment out from config-win32.h the
line that defines HAVE_STRUCT_SOCKADDR_STORAGE. But you
may encounter other problems for not having updated header
