And it works for Windows too. That's cool!

I'm not sure making a separate list element for each chunk that fread returns
is good. I'd use facilities from jam_src/string.h to build a big string and
create 1-element list.

I'm also worried about the fact that potentially long output will be stored
permanently in jam's string cache, but I see no way around this and anywhat
it's not something you can fix.
