Yes, such a check is required but such a check is quite difficult
(LIBVNCSERVER_PACKAGE_VERSION is a string). I wonder how a software
is supposed to detect the interface version of that package.

For instance, the patch uses a Windows function which is Windows 2000+.
Our Guest Additions do also support Windows NT4, therefore we did the
quick hack and disabled the runtime change for Windows hosts.

There were several other issues and some of them were fixed. See the
current SVN for more details, for example on how to use RTStrCopy().
