That worked.  Thanks so much!

FYI, ws2_32 is present on my system.  Windows searches were not seeing
it because it's considered hidden for some reason.  The visibility
doesn't account for the problem though, because I retried building from
an administration shell, and tried all different values for IDC_STATIC,
to no effect.  I have no idea why the functions which I am told are in
ws2_32.lib are not accessible.  All of the other details that I
mentioned (other than ws2_32.dll not being present) are accurate.

So now I'm on to trying to build the installer.  New question to follow
in separate post.

Thanks
