OK, I now changed all the three Makefiles in the win32.
MSVC and BCB work fine, but I can't get the MinGW one to compile the
source. It wants straight to archive the object files and I can't
figure out the problem. Maybe it's related to that subst operation.
Maybe Igor knows what to do...

It wants straight what? I don't quite catch that. I have to see it for myself.

But...is MinGW still supported by the configure.js after it was added to
the SH configure script? If not, the Makefile.mingw and the
configure.js code for it should be removed.

You remove it and I'll box your ears until the cows come home. I need that. The sh configure script is for those who use MSYS or Cygwin. Or for those who use Mingw on Linux and cross-compile to Windows. Do you happen to have MSYS or Cygwin installed? If so, then please do not enter the win32 subdirectory at all, let alone modify something there.

I will take a look at the SH configure script and try to get it in
there, too.

You can get the diffs done against the 2.6.7 releases here:


I did it against the latest distributed release, because I can't access
CVS anymore since the Firewall changed and on the ftpS//xmlsoft.org is
nothing but a libxslt CVS archive and the xmlsec stuff. Seems like
something went wrong with the FTP.

One plea for the future: Please post the diff attached, using a mime type 'text/plain'. It is nice to have it archived together with the post for easy review in the future. And others can comment on it in a reply much more easily. Your way gives an extra effort to download, extract, load... what, how big are those diffs? 5k? And you compress them to save what, 3k? If you did that to save storage or bandwidth, then you want to go live back in 1990 when it mattered.

Okay, having that clear, I'll take a look at your patch few days later. Today my age begins with a '2', tomorrow it won't. Must prepare for the party, don't expect to hear from me before Monday. :-)
