Due to some changes made in the last day or so, the Win32 build no
longer bootstraps. There are two issues that need fixing up:

b) careadlinkatcwd() and careadlinkat are undefined in src/sysdep.c

The missing macros in (a) can be worked around by adding a force-include
header file:

  cmd.exe /C "configure.bat ${args} --with-gcc --no-cygwin \
--cflags -I$(cygpath -wm ${srcdir}/nt) \
--cflags -include --cflags user_defines.h \

This forces inclusion of "nt/user_defines.h" which can then contain any
user defined macro definitions or workarounds. Incorporating something
like this into configure.bat would allow user defined macros while
avoiding the problems with quoting '='.

For MSVC based builds, I expect "--cflags /FI --cflags user_defines.h"
to work in a similar fashion.
