ws2_32: getaddrinfo("", ...) on OS X.

getaddrinfo() on Windows resolves an empty, but non-null host string to 
the addresses of all the network interfaces. A workaround for Linux was 
added in 75be2284, but unfortunately it does not work on OS X, since 
there, the host part of the machine name alone usually fails to resolve.

Tested on OS X 10.7.2, Arch Linux (Kernel 3.1.4, glibc 2.14.1) and 
Ubuntu Oneric.

See for a detailed comparison of the 
edge case behavior on the different OSes.
