I'm working on a product that needs libusb to work in a cygwin process,
but there's a problem. The released version (1.0.19) doesn't support
two very fundamental features: pollfds and hotplug. I see strong
indications that the current git version *does* have these features, so
I was really hoping to try using it to see if I can avoid the extremely
nasty (and still not working) tricks I'm having to devise.
The problem is, libusb doesn't build due to w32api headers referencing
other headers that don't exist:
In file included from /usr/include/w32api/setupapi.h:27:0,
/usr/include/w32api/oledlg.h:28:19: fatal error: tchar.h: No such file
Even pulling the libusb source package with the cygwin installer doesn't
result in any different behavior. I've tried various headers packages
(w32api, cygwin32-wapi, mingw-w32api) to no avail.
So, my question is: how does one simply rebuild the existing 1.0.19
package? I'm pretty sure I can take it from there as far as getting a
git version to compile...
