OpenLDAP in mingw32/NT

We've completed hosekeeping on our port of Openldap 2.0alpha to NT using
mingw32. Attached is a changelog giving a brief summary of all of our
changes. More detailed documents are also available. How should I submit the
other documents, and more importantly, how should I submit the diffs for
other folks to review?

- changelog.txt: This file is a consolidated log of the source file changes.
Basically, this file contains the set of files that I touched. Many of the
files are logically grouped together so that I could describe the set of
changes to various files, in a one-liner-type style, similar to a cvs log
description. The total set of affected files can be found in here, but it
not exist in this file as a single consecutive list.

- devnotes-openldap.txt: This file describes in more detail the types of
things that I've done to the source tree to port OpenLDAP to Mingw32. At the
end of this file, I list the full set of affected files as a consecutive,
alphabetically ordered list.

- mingw32-cygwin.txt: This file describes how to setup the Mingw32/Cygwin

- openldap-mingw32.txt: This file describes how to build OpenLDAP in the
Mingw32/Cygwin environment. The set of features that are and are not
are listed in THIS document. I figure this is where it belonged since it
useful to anyone building OpenLDAP.

- specs: This file is a copy of my gcc specs file. This is pretty much how
people will HAVE to configure their specs file if they have any hope of
building OpenLDAP without any problems.

- Adjusted the set of data type checks for Mingw32.
- Special checks for Mingw32 functions: _sprintf, _vsnprintf, _spawnlp.
- Created the following macros for Makefile dependencies: PLAT, LIB_LINKAGE,

- For NT (Mingw32), included stdlib.h to test for sys_errlist.

- Added an NT-specific section of macros.
- Added support to define the snprintf and vsnprintf macros.
- Added new macros to support NT (Mingw32): HAVE_SPAWNLP, HAVE_WINSOCK,

- Added the proper use of the LDAP_F macro.
- For ./include/ldap_pvt_thread.h, adjusted preprocessing to always typedef
  ldap_pvt_thread types in NT (Mingw32), whether or not threads are being used.

- Made use of the new macros defined by configure.in to dynamically build
  Makefiles suited for the build environment.
- Adjusted 'clean' and 'install' targets to account for .exe binaries.
- Added targets to build extra components for 'slapd' in NT (Mingw32).

- New files added to the source tree to build resources for Mingw32.

- New file added to the source tree to specify the set of symbols that
  'slapd' should export.

- Added stubs function, where exported symbols are called for dummy reference.
