Thanks for your reply Jehan,

As per the title of the thread I am working with Windows (using msys2 and
mingw64). I know that other people build under Windows and was hoping that one
of them might be able to point me in the right direction or post a work-around;
I assumed that I was making a mistake on the basis that I assumed that files
posted on git would at least compile!

As a general rule, unless I want to fix something in a dependency, I
work with the last stable build. Then if there is a problem and I want
the easy way out (i.e. still not having to fix the dependency), I
would just go back in history, but still keep to stable builds.
Also to compile for Windows, I use the tool I built, but this is to
cross-compile from Linux to Windows, and for most dependencies, I just
install them in a single command from pre-built packages. So I can't
really help you. Sorry. Working *on* Windows is just not what I do.
Maybe others will be able to help.

This said, maybe you can try to use the same pre-built package for
Windows (I use the ones from OpenSUSE repositories). Just uncompress
them and use the files in it.


Well this is probably the wrong place to ask about *building poppler*.
For this, you should ask to poppler mailing list/bug tracker/whatever
they use.
Maybe they have some bug on their HEAD, I guess.

This said, why do you even build it? Don't you have at least poppler
0.44.0 and poppler-data 0.4.7 in your distribution (assuming you use
These are like 2 years old. Any Linux distribution should already have
these versions or you are using a very outdated distribution.
