EOL issues could be a problem.
AFAICT, each executable has to be linked with $(FMODE_OBJ)
(lib/gis/OBJ.<arch>/fmode.o) to force MSVCRT (open() etc) to operate
in binary mode (the default is to translate LF<->CRLF). Apparently,
this has to go into the executable; putting it into a DLL won't work.
An alternative is to redefine O_RDONLY/O_WRONLY/O_RDWR to include the
O_BINARY flag, e.g.:
#define O_RDONLY (_O_RDONLY | _O_BINARY)
#define O_WRONLY (_O_WRONLY | _O_BINARY)
#define O_RDWR (_O_RDWR | _O_BINARY)
That won't work with stdin/stdout/stderr, though.
