#607: file-type does not work on Windows

 Because unknown file types like S_IFLNK are defined to S_IFREG on Windows,
 file-type will always report symbolic-link for regular files (and regular-
 file? will return #f).

 Attached patch tests for S_IFREG first, fixing the problem.  FYI, applying
 with "git am filename.patch" will propagate authorship credit.

 Alternative solution: define S_IFLNK etc. to 0.  Slightly more dangerous
 but all platforms should have no zero file type flags.  posix-extras
 currently uses this method.
