We tried to compile this excellent pecl extension on Windows 
and we found a portability issue in the network code. 

The extension uses plain "close(socket)" function instead of 
"closesocket(socket)". There is no problem using closesocket 
on Unix, since PHP provides a define for this, which is used 
throughout PHP itself as well. 

I have attached a small patch for your consideration.

Reproduce code:
* rename close -> closesocket so it will work on Windows
