MinGW doesn't seem to have implemented the "realpath()" function. This makes it impossible to easily compile certain software on Windows (e.g. I just failed to compile librsvg which uses the function since version 2.40.2).
There seems to have been a nearly working patch before ([patches:#256]) which was only abandoned due to seemingly minor issues.
It would be great if this can be revisited since I didn't find an alternative which would be fully portable.
