Not unconditionally: the implementation of file-system-info in
fileio.c is conditioned on !DOS_NT, and both MSDOS and WINDOWSNT ports
have their separate implementations which don't use Gnulib's fsusage.

Which port needs to exclude it, and why?  Is that port going to
implement its own version of file-system-info?  We must have a
non-trivial working implementation for each supported platform,
because Dired (and Tramp?) uses it.

If the port you are considering will have its own implementation, then
the same method as DOS_NT uses will be appropriate.

I don't think this could fly, because Dired and other places need a
real implementation.  Please tell more about the problem you are
trying to solve.
