at GNU Wget we are currently a bit puzzled about gnulib-tool's pro-tip

# include <sys/socket.h>
# include <ws2tcpip.h>

and 'make syntax-check' complaining about using HAVE_SYS_SOCKET_H:

maint.mk: do not test the above HAVE_<header>_H symbol(s);
  with the corresponding gnulib module, they are always true
make: *** [maint.mk:825: sc_prohibit_always_true_header_tests] Fehler 1

So far we dealt with it by disabling
sc_prohibit_always_true_header_tests in cfg.mk, but it feels wrong and
we want to use that check general.

Other project suffer from this as well, e.g. GnuTLS

What is your advise ?

Regards, Tim
