I don't use if for Unix either. It is only required for Windows.

BTW, beware of a possible version conflict now that Ian has taken up
ADNS development again after an eternity.  I have always used my own
fork "1.4-g10-N" which has been modified to use autoconf/libtool and
comes with v6 for some time.
