<dirent> functions under MinGW

It turns out that the <dirent> related functionality provided with MinGW is hoisted from Cygwin. As such, it has GPL restrictions.

Libtool is not using its own <dirent> replacement functionality if functions like opendir() are already present. The end result is that the final product is GPL rather than LGPL or following package's own license. Ugh.
