The w32api package is only for developing Windows application using
Mingw on Windows or cross-compiling Windows apps from a GNUtool chain.
Winelib is a better solution for your problem.

Yes the structures and defines in winnt.h are Windows and WINE only. It
will be nearly impossible to use them in a 100% native application.

I think it could help alot. The first thing you may want to try and do
is run your win32 application under WINE on a x86 linux box. If it
works there then it should recompile as a Winelib application. The
issue then becomes does Wine and Winelib work on Sparc. ATM I think the
port is incompleate although we did have some people at Sun who were
working on it and Wine does run under Solaris for x86. You can try and
port your Win32 application if you can get a WINE to build for Solaris
Another option would be to look at what functions Wines wininet.dll
imports and see if you can develop a native implementation of wininet
that sits on top of the Unix TCP/IP implementation rather than on Wine
We will try to help you as much as possible if you want to go the
Winelib route on the Sparc as we really want to see the Solaris on
Sparc port working.
