No problem.

We could make this optional - a few lines of comment in the Makefile 
on HOW TO enable/disable NLS (gettext) and disabling it by default is maybe best.

What do You mean by "unitl gettext is properly ported" - is my port not proper enough ? There are at least two other ports we could use.

BTW: who is currently maintaining the german translation of MC ?
There are several things that should be fixed/improved there.

  Yes - like I said - it was just giving trouble.

I will try with src/eregex.h and src/regex.c

I will check this , but I believe mingw doesn't have regex, as it uses the M$ runtime library.

even for testing MC for Win32 the Windows Emulator (WINE) might be sufficiant. (I have not yet tested MC.exe with WINE.)
