You're right.  I reverted this change (or rather, I modified things so
that the gmk_floc type is the same as it was before and is only used by
the loadable object API, and that the rest of make uses a different type
which has the extra member).  I feel that there's no need to have the
offset member visible through the loadable object API.

Is there any concept of "compatible ABI" with DLLs in Windows?  Sort of
like the UNIX major and minor .so versions?

I see that you didn't push any fixes for these issues.  Do you plan to
do that or should I look into it?  If you don't want to push the changes
as-is (maybe they work on Windows but are not portable) you can send me
a diff of the changes you made and I can look at them.
