Well, it _could_ work if gnulib would relax a couple modules to LGPLv2+
instead of their current LGPLv3+.

Meanwhile, mingw _does_ let us create a pipe already non-inheritible
(that is, pipe2(fds, O_CLOEXEC) _does_ work on mingw as an LGPLv2+
gnulib solution).

If you don't mind, I'd rather conditionally NAK this patch and try the
pipe2 approach instead, since the added in-function #ifdefs detract from
readability.
