We submitted this patch a few years ago, didn't hear much. What do people think now? This makes file I/O interfaces in libtiff/win32 and libtiff/*nix compatible, which is handy when writing cross platform applications.

I can add tif_win32crt.c to the distribution with the special option in nmake.opt file, so user can select what I/O interface to use.

But what a problem with the standard tif_win32.c? Your new tif_win32crt.c will be not portable anyway and specific for Windows.

Does the alternative implementation support 4GB files? Large file support is often an issue under Windows.
