We have always depended on the w32api package for the tests and
programs partly to make sure our own code is sane by having another
coverage point like building with the MSVC headers when compiling on
MSVC. Dmitry and I have disagreed with this for years though because
the mingw w32api maintainers can be a real PITA about getting patches
in and also because of the breakages that result when something is
missing like you mention. Switching to a using the wine headers and
import libs everywhere is long overdue and welcome!
