This long weekend, I attempted to update the patch for libgpg-error-1.36. This went well until I hit a new file in 1.36, sysutils.c, which makes use of  a UNIX header <unistd.h>.  Thorsten converted this to a win32's <io.h> in other files,[1] but following his example didn't work for me here.

We really need to get libgpg-error updated so that anyone upgrading LODE or doing a new install can have a working Windows build.  Unfortunately, I'm out of time for this week, so someone else is going to have to take over from here. I'd be glad to share my patch if you want to save a few min.
