On win32, ctypes.util.find_library uses os.path.exists() to check for
potential library files.  This means it is quite happy to return a
directory instead of a file, if one happens to exist with the
appropriate name somewhere in the search path.  Can this please be
changed to use os.path.isfile() instead of os.path.exists()?
