    I was able to work around this problem by replacing the occurrences of "_strnicmp" with "strnicmp", like they were in DevIL 1.7.8.

    That is probably correct; Windows wants underscores in front of the C standard library functions, everyone does not. For portability, probably something like

    ifdef _WIN32

    define strnicmp _strnicmp

    endif

    could be added.

    Here's Microsoft's view of the situation:

    I have added a definition for strnicmp to il_internal.h which will be part of version 1.8.0 and have reverted the occurences of _strnicmp to strnicmp.
