Maybe we could try to get this into libmikmod itself, instead of 'working
around it'. The website looks maintained, and I mailed Miodrag a few times
about two years ago (when libmikmod was still at version 3.1.4), and
he seems very responsive. I'm quite confident he'd accept patches, and roll
out 3.1.10 if necessary.
