GNUstep is currently one of CANNOT_DUMP platforms, and we have to make
sure if Emacs 23 works on such platforms.  Especially, preloading of
term/*-win.el, which was introduced by multi-tty, might cause some
problem on such platforms if it was changed by necessity.  Otherwise,
the preloading was actually unnecessary for multi-tty and it was
slipped into the unrelated multi-tty merger.
