Upstream has the same code, so I expect the fix is needed there too.

Renaming it means always using the replacement, while a libc which
provides it might have a better implementation. Is there a preprocessor
define we could use to distinguish it? e.g.

#if defined(_WIN32) && !defined(__MINGW__)

or something similar. Or you could add a configure check for HAVE_RINT.
Note that quite a few of the examples use it.

Alternatively, it looks like Visual Studio provides rint these days, so
just removing the replacement code might be a viable option.
