I'm confused.

Windows doesn't have a "glob" function and no "glob.h" file either.

I didn't set

        File windows-NT\config.h.in.in:
        352     #define HAVE_GLOB_H 1

This was done I suppose some time ago and certainly not I recently.


My patch drops "GLOB_PREFIX" because "windows-NT/mkconfig.pl" was
saying it's gone from root "config.h.in" and grep confirms it no
