Yep, I've had a quick look around and it appears the posix
compatability layer was made optional in XP.  In that case it's
probably better to make serve-event optional for the time being; I'm
adding a basic unix package at the moment, if anyone wants to add a
W32 compatability layer to it they can and we'll work from there.
