trouble compiling liblwres on Windows (BIND 9.3.0)

The compiler fails on liblwres with the message:

W:\Z\kits\BIND\bind-9.3.0\lib\lwres\win32\lwconfig.c(42) : fatal error 
C1083: Cannot open include file: 'iphlpapi.h': No such file or directory

That's where I got the impression that the file was required for the 
build :D.
