The "#if defined(DIR)" is wrong because it incorrectly assumes that
dirent.h will define DIR as a macro and not a typedef. Not sure
what the Windows problem is here but it would be better addressed
with a windows specific test. I'm fixing the test to test for
HAVE_DIRENT_H instead.. this may break Windows builds but if so
hopefully somebody who uses Windows can figure out a fix for that.
