Help: fd_set porting to Win32?

Help is appreciated with any clues on the following
porting fun to MSVC++. "Winsock2.h" defines fd_set as follows:

typedef struct fd_set {
        u_int fd_count;
        SOCKET  fd_array[FD_SETSIZE];
} fd_set;

This typedef struct <name> { ... } <name>; is strange in itself,
but nothing I can possibly change. Now, I have to change some
occurrences of instantiation in Ncat, as follows:

struct fdset_set {
        typedef struct fd_set master;
        typedef struct fd_set read_fds;
} set[SET_SIZE];

This, in turn, is accepted but won't let me access the "set" members:

                                if(FD_ISSET(set[i].socks4_client, &set[i].read_fds)){

Gives me the following errors:

1>\documents\svn-insecure\ncat\ncat_proxy.c(316) : error C2274:
'function-style cast' : illegal as right side of '.' operator
1>\documents\svn-insecure\ncat\ncat_proxy.c(316) : error C2227: left
of '->fd_count' must point to class/struct/union/generic type
1>\documents\svn-insecure\ncat\ncat_proxy.c(317) : error C2273:
'function-style cast' : illegal as right side of '->' operator

Please, is there any sane way to deal with fd_set on windows?

Already tried to find out why this does work in nmap, with no luck. I cannot
see what is included differently, plus sys/select.h just isn't there on Win32,
so I have to include winsock2.h which doesn't let me instantiate
fd_set as it was.
