In this particular case, test-ftell.sh is calling 'echo hi |
./test-ftell${EXEEXT}'.  But ftell uses lseek, and gnulib already works
around the mingw bug that lseek on pipes doesn't fail with ESPIPE.  I'll
have to see if I can reproduce this, and if there might be a recent
regression in behavior here.
