In case anyone finds this useful, I've written a patch to compile
libgpod-0.7.2 on Windows.  I was able to build the library (using

the included test applications on my first-gen iPod nano.  Everything
should be correctly #ifdef'd to not break other platforms, but I have
not tested this yet since my Linux system already syncs the iPod just
fine. :-)

I think you should avoid having all these conditionals in the code. My comments below; I hope they're useful.

My specific build environment was Windows XP Professional SP3,
MinGW-5.1.4, MSYS-1.0.10, gtk+-bundle_2.16.1-20090419_win32,

Anyway, the patch:

You should probably add a HAVE_SYS_MMAN_H check to autoconf.

What about creating a dummy definition for sync in Win32? It would be more readable than having the 4-5 ifdefs in the patch. Autoconf helps you here with AC_REPLACE_FUNCS.

What is the reason for this condition? If the S_I* constants don't exist on Windows, maybe you should define them to zero in a header. An alternative is to pass 0777 instead of the constants, which should work on Windows as well.

You could use g_mkdir instead of ifdef here with no other changes.

Same here.
