I discarded the "wnt_lstat" function and "windows-NT/config.h.in.in"
contains "#define stat lstat" which is the same as "lib/system.h" file.
As we agreed "windows-NT/config.h.in.in" does "#define stat wnt_stat".

If timestamps aren't used then we don't need "wnt_stat" nor "rpl_stat"
since the platform "stat" implementation should work.

I committed so the Windows build completes and lowered the warnings count.
