$make -f win/Makefile.mingw

    Looks remarkably like (a wchar_t variant of) [#1968]; that issue cleared, for me, when I cloned the currently active git master, (as opposed to the old, abandoned pre-Allura migration repository). Has some of that inconsistency crept into RC1?

    I get the same error when I try to build gdk-pixbuf using 4.0-rc2. I hope you can point me to a solution.

    Best regards,

    This is almost certainly related to [#1984] -- a ticket which Earnie appears to have overlooked -- and ultimately relates back to [#1973]; the various _wfind... typedefs are swallowed by the malformed (unclosed) comment reported in the former.

    This is a known issue with wchar.h, which remains malformed even as of Earnie's most recent commit on 2013-06-07.

    I just tried building fossil and was able to build fossil with my working repository. I'll push fixes sometime tomorrow.

    I am now able to build fossil and execute the result.

    NOTE: You must rebuild and install the WSL 4.0-dev repository code since corrections need to take effect in libmingwex.a. A new release candidate will be out soon.
