I've had a quick try at building 2.9.0 on a 32-bit Windows system
using MS Visual Studio 2010 from the command line. There was a minor
problem in that none of the Win32 Makefiles seem to have been updated
to include the recent addition of the buf.c module. I think it needs
to be added to: Makefile, Makefile.bcb, Makefile.msvc, Makefile.mingw
VC10\libxml2.vcproj, and wince\libxml2.vcp (there are certainly lots of
ways to do things on Windows...).

  ah, good point ! Sorry I never use Windows
Another test which was introduced in 2.9.0 named testlimits.c is also
certainly missing from the Windows makefiles and could be interesting
to run at least once on Windows.

With buf.obj added to the dependencies, libxml2 built without
problems. Trying "runsuite" resulted in 10 error (all in the James
Clark suite - problems with parsing very large decimal values and

 I get those 10 too

Invoking "runtest" listed 10 errors as well - although all involved
test/ebcdic_566012.xml. This is probably the result of my building with
a rather old version of libiconv (1.9.1).

  Ah, well ebcdic support seems to be missing from Windows iconv
  versions in general, so that one is a known problem which tends to pop
up in all Windows runs, so if you only got that in runtest, that sounds
pretty good to me !

I hope to try the tests with the Borland compiler as well, though I haven't actually used that for some 

  Thanks for the report in any case !
Also if you have a chance to send the diff or the modified Windows files
that would be appreciated :-)
