Unfortunately it does not build on Mingw:

GNULIB does not even claim to support openpty on Mingw


The problem is that even though it doesn't support it on Mingw, it
still enables its replacement code, which then fails because Mingw
lacks any definition of  struct termios and struct winsize, let
alone the body of the function.

Unless someone spots an easy patch, it looks like we'll need to do
a 0.9.8 release of libvirt to revert this code
