That's going to be difficult. Windows does not treat file handles the same
as *nix does. A network handle is different than a file handle in Windows.
You need to conditionally compile code that only applies to windows based on
the operating system flags and not the compiler flags. Unfortunately most
code seems to be written based on the MSC compiler flag and doesn't detect
if it's compiled in gcc under windows. mingw does not offer work arounds for
the file handles issue either.
