I'm using Debian wheezy and I've been trying to cross-compile a screen saver for Windows. The linker complains about missing symbols such as _WinMain@16 and _DefScreenSaverProc@16. These should exist inside libscrnsave.a so that linking is possible with -lscrnsave, but that file is practically empty; its size is 672 bytes.
I downloaded the MinGW-w64 source tarball version 2.0.8 and noticed that it contains the source file for libscrnsave.a (at least that's what I think it is): the path in the tarball is mingw-w64-v2.0.8/mingw-w64-crt/libsrc/scrnsave.c. I also noticed that the entire contents of the file have been wrapped inside #if 0 ... #endif so it is basically an empty file. Obviously, that would explain why no symbols end up in libscrnsave.a.
#if 0 ... #endif
Can someone tell me why the code in scrnsave.c has been commented out? I can copy the file to my project, uncomment it, and it seems to work fine. Sorry if I'm not getting things right here; this is my first stab at cross-compiling.
Thanks in advance.
