The default runtime _fmode is text with all Windows compilers. Why is
this a problem only for mingw32's 20030208 build of GCC 3.2.2?

The usual way to set _fmode to binary globally is to link with
binmode.obj, but I'm not absolutely sure that we want _fmode to be
binary globally (otherwise we would have already done this for MSVC).
