As stated in the patch, the problem with the standard tif_win32.c is that I can't make the following call from a windows application:

  fp = fopen( "foo.tif", "rb")


It seems to me I have often accidentally or on purpose used tif_unix.c on win32 and it worked fine. Wouldn't it be less complication just to continue ensuring that the tif_unix.c will work fine on win32 if selected to compile in?
