Correct.  But a platform that lacks gettimeofday altogether should also
compile the replacement file (but with REPLACE_GETTIMEOFDAY left alone).

An inadvertent regression, particularly since the documentation already
mentions that mingw lacks the function.  I will commit this after testing
a cross-compile to mingw; let me know if it helps your situation (I don't
