Hi Jim,

A gnulib testdir with the module 'ftruncate', cross-compiled to mingw
(--host=i386-pc-mingw32), showed me this:

configure: error: Your system lacks the ftruncate function.
          Please report this, along with the output of "uname -a", to the
          address@hidden mailing list.  To continue past this point,
          rerun configure with SKIP_FTRUNCATE_CHECK=yes.
          E.g., ./configure SKIP_FTRUNCATE_CHECK=yes

Since mingw will still be around for a few years, we need to keep this module.
(But if you didn't have many reports like this and if mingw is not among the
porting targets of coreutils, you may of course drop this module from 

The ftruncate.m4 has a FIXME with the date 2007. Does this mean that you can
now remove the SKIP_FTRUNCATE_CHECK? Having to rerun configure is a bit
annoying for the installer.
