I'm using the top of the line version of MingW (v3.18). I don't think
MingW has changed too much the last 5 years that it would matter for 
Tor. Except for the added gettimeofday() (in MingW v.316 I believe), an
orconfig.h should be unaware of any MingW version.

Okay, but I'm now building Tor with the attached orconfig.h. This has
"only" 5 tests for __MINGW32__. I don't think that is asking for trouble.
