Then all Winsock functions must be wrapped in such macro.
E.g (untested):
#define SOCK_SELECT(fd,rd,wr,ex,tv)  ( \
        int _rc = select (fd,rd,wr,ex,tv), \
        (int)(WSAGetLastError() ? (errno = WSAGetLastError()) : (0)), \

which could get messy; hard to return with a value from such a

XEmacs is probably using native Win functions (e.g CreateFile
instead of fopen), so it needs to map them to Unix errnos. Wget only 
uses ANSI/Winsock functions, so only WS errors need attention.

Besides, on Windows there is no suiteable <errno.h> value for
e.g. ENOTCONN; we must use the <winsock*.h> value WSAENOTCONN.
So the XEmacs method wouldn't work.
