Sorry, I don't quite follow.  Many packages slap that stuff directly
into their makefiles from modules/dirent, using an automated script.
Are you saying that these packages might not work on Unix-like hosts?
on Windows-like hosts?

Do Windows-based compilers not have memcpy?  If not, then this module
need not depend on the memcpy module.

I'd wait for the paperwork, since it's not urgent.
