If that module is in our repository only because of MS-Windows, then
it indeed isn't needed.

I see no problems in MinGW headers with PRIdPTR nor with intptr_t.

The warnings disappeared because you installed a change that  no
longer uses the GCC warning options which triggered them.  So I'm
unsure how you'd like me to test the patch, please elaborate.

The problem is not with MinGW's definition of intptr_t: it is
typedef'ed as 'int' in 32-bit builds in the MinGW headers.  The
problem is not with intptr_t, it's with its Gnulib equivalent:

  pdumper.c:1229:6: warning: format '%d' expects argument of type 'int', but 
argument 4 has type 'gl_intptr_t' {aka 'long int'} [-Wformat=]

It complains about gl_intptr_t, not intptr_t.  That's because Gnulib's
stdint.h does this:

  #  ifdef _WIN64
  typedef long long int gl_intptr_t;
  typedef unsigned long long int gl_uintptr_t;
  #  else
  typedef long int gl_intptr_t;
  typedef unsigned long int gl_uintptr_t;
  #  endif
  #  define intptr_t gl_intptr_t
  #  define uintptr_t gl_uintptr_t

I don't understand why it uses 'long int' 32-bit platforms, it looks
gratuitous, especially since MinGW itself uses just 'int'.  (Another
question is why Gnulib thinks it needs to redefine intptr_t, but if
the redefinition was correct, this would not be especially important.)
