      When I compile Vim on my Win 98 machine, and then run the binary on a Win NT
      machine, it should work. Thus the code should not depend on #ifdefs, which
      work at compile time, but on something that doesn't use the ACL functions when
      running on a system that doesn't support it.

      The real problem was that the Ming compiler doesn't have the libraries for the
      ACL functions. Thus it doesn't work at compile time.

      Win 98 is very similar to Win 95, from a programmers viewpoint. Just like
      Win NT and 2000 are similar.
