compat/fopen.c: avoid clobbering the system defined fopen macro
Some systems define fopen as a macro based on compiler settings. The previous technique for reverting to the system fopen function by merely undefining fopen is inadequate in this case. Instead, avoid defining fopen entirely when compiling this source file. Signed-off-by: Brandon Casey <> Tested-by: Mike Ralphson <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
