That should be fixed, since a seek succeeding on a pipe is contrary to
POSIX.  Is fseek being replaced on W32?  If so, the gnulib replacement
has a bug - it should be preventing fseek() from succeeding on a pipe.
If not, then we should fix the m4 tests to filter out the buggy W32
fseek and install the gnulib replacement.
