In short: inet_ntop is not available in Windows XP.
I'm maintaining a side project, where I have luajit ffi bindings for
zeromq, and support them for osx, windows, linux, etc.

I'm just not experienced enough with zeromq's code base to provide a
patch, hence I don't ever expect this to get fixed, but thought that
other people might be affected. (Then again who would used Windows XP
