given how the code is written in libgda, which makes it (mostly) not
depend at all on a linux/unix system, I still think the best solution
for this is to create win32 makefiles, and not use
autoconf/automake/libtool at all, which, as we've already seen, makes
So, I'd propose to get the makefiles that are in the glib-2.0/gtk-2.0
sources, which are done for MS's make and gcc (AFAIR) and use them as
templates to create new win32-specific makefiles for libgda. I think
this is going to be easier.
