Linking with binmode.obj has been the way we have avoided being bitten
by MSVC in the past, but earlier versions of GCC defaulted to binary
mode and did not contain a binmode.obj (or .o) so that was made
conditional in the makefile. More recent versions of GCC now act more
like Windows compilers, defaulting to text mode and providing a
binmode.o to link with if you want binary mode as the default.
