DJGPP build

I tried to build bash-4.2 for the DJGPP (GNU for MS-DOS) 
platform. It had been done before, but the latest available version was 

Something interesting has been found in the process. First: 
version.c protects the use of snprintf with #if defined 
(HAVE_SNPRINTF). But HAVE_SNPRINTF is always defined, only it is 
defined as 0 if snprintf is not available. Here is a patch to fix that.

Second, the variable 
job_control is only declared when JOB_CONTROL is #define'd. Yet, there 
is one case where its use is not protected by a suitable #if. Here's a 
patch to fix that.

Third, a comment in posixdir.h says "Posix does not 
require that the d_ino field be present, and some systems do not 
provide it". But the #if statement immediately above seems to implay 
that all non-Posix systems have it, because it assumes that it is 
always present if _POSIX_SOURCE is not defined. The following patch 
conditions the use of d_ino to the fact that configure successfully 
tests it, independently of _POSIX_SOURCE. Also, it avoids using 
d_fileno not only when d_ino is broken, but also when it is missing

If the above patches were applied, it would be a big step 
towards having a new version of bash for DJGPP. It wouldn't be enough, 
because DJGPP does not support the signals SIGCHLD and SIGWINCH and the 
flag SA_RESTART. And the code would improve anyway, because they fixed 
some little-tested cases.
