I can't comment much on this part. Lots of changes occurred.

I've had your patches sitting in my inbox since 2009.  Never got
around to it.  Sorry.

Since that time, I finally installed the mingw32 cross compiler that
Fedora has so now its easier for me to do this type stuff.

I'll start peeling off some of the fixes and submit them.  The main
thing preventing me from doing it earlier is about 1/2 are generic
issues to be solved and so I'm working on ways not to use the #ifdef
WIN32 check.

Lets hope I don't get distracted again. :-)
