I'd like to partition the Microsoft-relevant stuff as much
as possible into the ms/* subdirectory.

One possibility is to have a separate header, ms/mingw.h, which
src/system.h will include

Sure, something like that would be fine, though I'd rather
put the relevant changes into the ms/* subdirectory.
For example, we could create a file ms/system.h that does
something like this:

 #include <mingw.h>
 #include_next <system.h>

and then have the Microsoft build compile with -I../ms before
-I.  Or, if something like that doesn't suffice, we could have the
Microsoft build patch src/system.h first thing, put the
patched version into ms/system.h, and then continue building
with -I../ms.
