In the pursuit of a Windows build with minimal changes to the source, I figure it's easiest to use https://github.com/tronkko/dirent.git as a submodule instead of having to maintain some local workaround. I propose adding this submodule to a new folder thirdparty/dirent.
This change won't affect anything else by itself, but then a reference can be added to makefiles or other build scripts to take advantage of it.
Original Redmine Comment
Adding submodules increases the friction as we have a lot of users that are git novices, so at this time I would prefer not to go that route.
Presumably there's some smaller fix? Alternatively maybe disable using the dirent stuff, given it's just a performance enhancement?
