I've built this pretest with mingw.org's MinGW on MS-Windows.

The build is basically clean, with the sole exception of 3 warnings
about Gnulib's redefinition of 'free':

     libtool: compile:  d:/usr/bin/gcc.exe -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. 
-I./gnulib/lib -I./gnulib/lib -DDATADIR=\"d:/usr/share\" -s -O2 -DWIN32 
-DPERL_IMPLICIT_SYS -DUSE_PERLIO -fwrapv -fno-strict-aliasing -mms-bitfields -s 
-O2 -DVERSION=\"0\" -DXS_VERSION=\"0\" -ID:/usr/Perl/lib/CORE -MT xspara.lo -MD 
-MP -MF .deps/xspara.Tpo -c xspara.c -DDLL_EXPORT -DPIC -o .libs/xspara.o
     In file included from xspara.c:40:
     D:/usr/Perl/lib/CORE/XSUB.h:565: warning: "free" redefined
       565 | #    define free  PerlMem_free
     In file included from xspara.c:19:
     ./gnulib/lib/stdlib.h:737: note: this is the location of the previous 
       737 | #   define free rpl_free

Similar warnings are issued in MiscXS.xs, in misc.c, and in
Parsetexi.xs.  I guess more Gnulib-related magic in the configury is
needed to avoid that?

The tests all pass (with some of them skipped).  The stand-alone Info
reader works as expected, both for viewing Info manuals (including
Gzip-compressed ones) and for man pages.
