The good news: yes, I am using the library under OS/2.
The bad news:  I'm still using version 2.17.
It turns out I did enough tweaking and changing to use this for my own purposes that I have not taken 
the time to redo it with the newer libraries.  Very little of my work was related to OS/2 problems.  
The basic changes were to the tcp headers and some differences in the file system calls (sockets and 
files cannot be treated the same).  I basically changes all of the conditional stuff to traet OS/2 as a 
flavor of BSD Unix -- the socket calls are basically the same.  I sent these changes to Henrik a long 
time ago, if you want me to forward them to you, let me know.
