I've just tried to build glib 2.3.3 under my linux-x-mingw32 build environment (thanks for the release, Owen). After Tor's comment on bug 134813 it wasn't a great surprise that it fell over badly.

Just looked at the bug number and found nothing relevant (your typo or mine ;-) and commited stuff laying around on my disk since the weekend. Compiling dindn't fail that badly and should work at least with msvc again ...

My situation is that I have chosen to base the latest application I'm writing on glib 2.3.2 on the basis that 2.4.0 would be released in plenty of time before I was ready to release my own stable version. This now seems in jeopardy.

Are you about to release your version very soon, do you think some small
build glitches are jeopardy - or did I miss some breakage ?

Given this, I would like to look at solving these problems if noone else more qualified is available to look at these issues this week.

I'm certainly not qualified for configure magic, but ...

I attach what I have so far - a patch to glibconfig.h to at least allow the build to progress to gmain.c (I don't know if including windows.h from glibconfig.h is a good idea yet, so I haven't yet submitted this to bugzilla).

... including windows.h in glibconfig.h would cause huge breakage in application code due to massive namespace clashes (at least in Dia).
