lynx-dev Adding dired support under MingW32

I've been looking at adding dired support to the MingW32 version
of the latest February lynx.exe.  I can get lynx to compile by
making the following modification to LYLocal.c:


; Line 47 of LYLocal.c:
#ifndef VMS
#ifndef _WINDOWS
#include <sys/wait.h>
#define uid_t   long
#include <sys/stat.h>
#endif /*_WINDOWS */
#endif /* VMS */


Pushing the 'f' key to "edit" a local directory gets the expected
dired menu, but attempting, e. g., to erase a local file gets an
error message "unable to determine status of file".  Since the
Windows32 crtdll.dll C library supports stat() and lstat(), I am
unsure of what is causing this.  Still, being able to push the
"e" key to edit a local text file is worth the effort to add the
-DDIRED_SUPPORT definition to the makelynx.bat.
