Yes, the _ftime function, which is an inlined function in VC 2008 that 
calls _ftime64. I have to build a lot of dependencies for Pygame so I 
want to avoid patching code when possible. Instead I have a custom 
libmsvcr90.a that has stub functions for the various time functions. It 
lets me create static libraries that link to both msvcr71.dll and 
msvcr90.dll. No manifest files required. And no patches to MinGW.
