Is there a LD_PRELOAD-like mechanism on windows, by which you can
intercept all open-like library calls?
<> suggests there isn't one.

Why does MS not provide a compiler fully capable of working in the
Interix environment in the first place, by the way?

I suppose you can work around this by putting
  LN_S='cp -p'

in a suitable file.  Yes, I know that's an ugly workaround,
but I'm running out of ideas here, sorry.
