yes, looking at gnome-xml sources might be a good example, since it uses
auto*, and it works on many platforms, included cygwin, AFAIK.

Once you get the auto* stuff solved, the only thing to do would be to
compile over and over, to find the problems. And anything you find
there, tell us, and we'll see how's the best way to fix it.
Although, using glib and libxml2, we shouldn't have to change many
things. The code should be mostly portable as it is.
