IMHO, it does.

It's wrong for Emacs to use such code, IMHO.  It should either invoke
`cat' (and let it be found along PATH), or, better, implement some
code that would eliminate the need for an external program altogether,
since `cat' is not guaranteed to be available on every platform
supported by Emacs.

It strikes me that it woyldn't be hard to eliminate the need for
`cat', since Emacs already has a means to visit files.

What compiler did you use to compile that program?  Was that MinGW's
