Why do you need it?  If your program doesn't include it, but GCC
complains about it anyway, it's due to a bug in one of the C++ headers. 
Edit lang/cxx/_G_config.h and change the line reading

#define _G_HAVE_SYS_SOCKET 1

Change the 1 to a 0.

If the source does include it, it's trying to use networking stuff
that's not native to DJGPP.  There are, however, some libraries on
Simtelnet that provide this functionality via Windows' networking
