[bug-patch] Building patch-2.6.1-2-g2c4e3ec on Windows

I've just successfully built the new alpha patch-2.6.1-2-g2c4e3ec for
Windows using mingw and msys. There were only a few minor issues, and
I'm sending two simple patches that fix them:

1. warning.diff: Some missing prototypes in the gnulib strndup/strnlen
stuff, only causing compiler warnings

2. windows.diff: Windows doesn't have a chown function, so I just
disabled the code that calls it.

Also Andreas, are you still interested in my patch-seekable.diff
changes from this email:

The main reason I did that was to avoid problems seeking in text mode
files, which causes the assertion mentioned here:

I found there was already code that copies stdin into a temporary file
if it isn't seekable. So I moved the code around to copy to a temp
file even if the original file is not stdin and still isn't seekable.
