MSVC Portability

After the first run with the DLLs compiled in Visual studio, there was 
an access violation. I found that the pointer to FILE structure returned 
by g_fopen is not compatible with file operations in MS libraries ( Does 
this state the same? 
). Forcefully defining fopen over g_fopen solved the issue, but I would 
like a different solution. (For example to change all g_fopen calls to 
some custom function call, eg. purple_fopen or anything else that can 
then be defined separately for MSVC.) I would then use 
MultiByteToWideChar to convert the name to wchar_t and the non-standard 
_wfopen to get the FILE pointer.
If you know a better way to open files with Unicode filenames under 
Windows please let me know.

Not for me at the moment.
