No need as we supply a special static version of libxdr with wingrass. So
whatever we do there does not affect other versions of GRASS.

Actually, as Glynn points out, we do not even have a performance loss
since libgis does not use pipes. So the current wingrass version should
work without any problems.

However, I agree with Glynn that the ideal solution is to just get rid of
xdr for DBMI communication.
