I am nearly 100% that if you buy some 3rd party SCTP library for windows 
(though I am not aware of any open-source ones), it would have support 
for standard SCTP socket API (*).  In that case it might be sufficient 
just to patch the inet_drv's configure/Makefile to add SCTP support for 
windows.
