There are platform-specific macros in various places - mostly in */*_.h's (e.g.
stdio_.h, unistd_.h) so at least your new changes are compatible in the general
direction and better than put them in *.c's. configure is a shell thing, which
is somewhat extra to the mingw ethos. it is probably not important either way.
