I have nothing against Gnulib, but in this case their solution is
simply not up to speed.

Most of it is already on a separate file, w32-proc.c (see the diffs).
I could take the macros at the beginning of posix.c and put them on a
separate .h file, if that would be better.  The rest of the changes in
posix.c are just moving #ifdef's around, more or less, and a few small
fragments of code, not unlike in other places.  I could, of course,
put them in separate functions, but the advantage of the patch I
pointed to is that it's well tested.
