    Nothing. Ignore them for now.

    NetWare/netware.h | SOCKET | HAS_SOCKET
    This is coming from the following section in U/modified/d_socket.U:

    ?C:HAS_SOCKET (SOCKET):
    ?C: This symbol, if defined, indicates that the BSD socket interface is
    ?C: supported.
    ?C:.

    The "Old" symbol is the one in parentheses. You can get rid of the
    warning by deleting (SOCKET) from the unit. NetWare/netware.h is using
    SOCKET for an entirely different meaning.

    You can go through and get rid of all those old symbols (they are for
    dist-2.0 and before, if memory serves). The only downsides I see are:

    1. You actually have to go through all the units and do the actual
    editing. If the unit is being found in the 'dist' distribution, you have
    to create a private 'modified' copy (put it in the 'modified' directory)
    just to remove this symbol.

    2. If Schwern ever goes anywhere with his "perl1" project, he'll have to
    convert all the old symbols to the new ones in order to use a modern
    Configure :-).
