The *-win.el files are supposed to be used _only_ for the windowed
sessions.  If some build produces only a non-windowed version (like
the --without-x on Posix platforms), then the respective *-win.el
should NOT be required.

If the multi-tty branch somehow changed that, then someone who knows
the multi-tty code should explain why.
