Another option is to use mingw/msys, which lets you reuse the *nix
build infrastructure.


That said i have built dia on win32 with msys/mingw some time ago, a
patch is available from . If you manage
getting to the point where dia builds with said patch enabling python
support should be pretty easy.

OK - I'm trying a bit harder this time. I have installed mingw/msys and
have created a file called dia-win32-mingw-02.diff containing your patch
in ../mingw/dia-0.95/ although I don't exactly know how to deal with it.
I presume it has to be nominated somewhere in Any advice?

In the ../mingw/dia-0.95/ directory I am running ...

    ./configure --with-python; make; make install

Checking seems to proceed for some distance before failing at ...

- - last few lines of mingw configure error message - ->
checking for pkg-config... /mingw/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for GMODULE... configure: error: Package requirements (gmodule-2.0 gobject-2.0) were not met.
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively you may set the GMODULE_CFLAGS and GMODULE_LIBS environment variables
to avoid the need to call pkg-config.  See the pkg-config man page for
more details.
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
make: Nothing to be done for `install'.

Google found gmodule and gobject sources for me in glib-morphos.lha but I cannot compile them. What I think I really need are gmodule and gobject binaries so I can get a bit further compiling dia-0.95 as per the above error message.

Thanks for any advice
