Great! I don't know if you dowloaded libmingwex sources and have updated that or
if you have a separate library. In any case, you can find the current mingwex
sources as mentioned here:

under "src/winsup/mingw".

AFAICT, "dirent.h", "tchar.h" and "dirent.c" need to be touched.
If you're convinced by your testing that it works properly, you can then
submit it to the mingw-patches list. See:

??? This header should be in $XGCC_DIR/mingw32/include. Have you not put
it there?

In general, you can see the output of "mingw32-gcc -v foo.c" to figure out
which directories it is actually searching the header for.

Sorry, but I don't know about this define. Where did you pick it up from?
