Robert: Can you confirm this, and approve me to delete it from ini.cc ?
Well, fprintf *is* used in setup. The fprintf in ini.cc is used to pop
fprintf(stderr, ...) into a messagebox.
And, fprintf (stderr, ...) is used in setup.
Ergo, this will be a problem when the next mingw-runtime comes out.
Danny, if you have a patch for either mingw or setup, that'd be great.
Does what you are suggesting impose any limitations on setup ?
There would be no limitation to setup, it would just be slightly slower
To build a snap release of mingw-runtime, just issue ``make snapshot''
in the winsup/mingw build directory and a snapshot tarball will be created.
