Yes and in many cases it did work without unistd.h, but maybe that
is because it really wasn't needed at all.

In some case it might have worked because some of the functions in
unistd.h is defined else where in Windows and in some case we might
get it to work by including needed files.

Of course in such cases we probably should fix Wine and
include that other header exclusively instead of unistd.h.

Anyway, I just experimented a little trying to get Wine to compile
under Windows. I'm not really sure exacly what to do.

Eventually I guess that the non-core DLL:s never should call any
non Windows functions at all and the core DLL:s are not really useful
to compile and run under Windows anyway.
