Thanks very much. 

It needs to also check for the possibility of O_BINARY not being
defined on Unix, but aside from that it's good.

I wonder if the output redirection in exec.c needs to set this mode as
well?  It's not clear to me.  If we're producing a .i file to send to
a Unix host, then I suppose we want it in Unix mode, but for a
compiler on the local machine perhaps not.

By the way, your patch was word-wrapped, but the very nifty
"unwrapdiff" from patchutils straightened it out.
