Yes, it was the Jan 5th snapshot. Apparantly it does not have the 
headers because I installed everything again and had the same problem.

I have checked that. It says that I should use a new snapshot for 
better socket support, but which snapshot should I use? From the ftp 
site I see that the latest is 02-24, but some of the files only go up 
to 02-21. Do I just get only the 02-21 stuff or do I get the latest 
of everything?

Also are there instructions somewhere on how to install and compile 
the snapshot stuff?
