You might try replacing the #error directive with: 

setsockopt(tds->s, SOL_TCP, TCP_NODELAY, (const void *) &len, 

Even if the detection of the header file failed, it might still compile.
If it does, you're in good shape.  

If that doesn't compile, I think it would be OK to simply delete the
#error directive for now.  See below.

I think the fallback should be to use none of these features.  They're
only performance enhancements; the TDS protocol doesn't require them.
We could add a #warning that performance might be adversely affected.  

Am I missing something?  Do we have metrics on this?
