Same here. Except I didn't try the NTFS case.

I'm with Petter on this. If it's easy, great.
If it involves getting rid of the version number from the atomic_ops directory, even better, since that was on my list anyway. Libatomic_ops should either be handled as a separate package, or should just use GC version numbers. And I think the former option requires more work for which we're currently lacking volunteers.
On the other hand, if it's hard to fix, I think it's not unreasonable to require a *n*x file system for the *n*x build process.
I expect to check in my pending cancellation patches shortly. Please let me know if I should check in Petter's patches from today as well. Otherwise I'll assume that Ivan will do so and update configure.
