[fpc-pascal]Socket() call broken in 1.9.3 CVS?

I pulled in 1.9.3 from CVS yesterday.  When I recompiled some code I have 
been working on I found my program crashed when creating a socket.  The 
program fails with no error.  It just exits.  I created a test program 
with just the socket call and it also fails the same way.  Here is the 

   Program test_socket;

      FileHandle:  integer;
      writeln( 'sizeof( integer): ', sizeof( integer));
      writeln( 'Before socket call.');
      FileHandle:= socket( AF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, 0);
      writeln( 'After socket call.');

I followed the CVS download instructions on the Web site.  Do I need to 
look at a different branch?
