Just updated from Git and tried to build libglib using MSVC.  The

limited) research I did, it seemed as if they're only relevant for 
*nix, bash and Wine.  Here are the affected source files in case 
someone wants to check them:-


I've attached a couple of sample patches, either of which should fix the 
problem for 'glib/gtestutils.c'.  I'm not sure which of them would be 
considered as more preferable..?

One minor thing to take into account is that stdout and stderr are not
always file descriptors 1 and 2 on Windows environments. When an
executable is built with '-mwindows' (instead of '-mconsole') then there
is no stdout/stderr by default. To get a stdout/stderr one has to use
the win32 API functions AttachConsole and freopen which in turn will
return different file descriptors than 1 and 2.

See also this bugreport which I filed some time ago (with patch)
regarding g_log on Win32:
