Description Ignacio Casal Quinteiro 2016-08-08 07:25:14 UTC
On our downstream gtk-win32 project we are maintaining a patch for quite a while already to make it build with MSVC. It would be great if somebody could take the interesting parts from it and push it upstream:

Comment 1 Akira TAGOH 2016-08-15 07:22:51 UTC
One concern before applying that patch, does it still work on MinGW? they also use WIN32 on ifdef lines.
Comment 2 LRN 2017-03-02 19:32:57 UTC
All i can say is that mingw-w64 fontconfig-2.12.1 builds with this patch and passes all tests in the testsuite (all 4 of them...).
Comment 3 LRN 2017-03-03 05:19:39 UTC
Though you should probably define FLEXIBLE_ARRAY_MEMBER to 1 (MSVC doesn't run the configure script, which detects this and defines this macro) instead of hardcoding 1 there.
