Description nightstrike 2008-05-16 16:08:05 UTC

Based on the aforementioned email, configure needs to be updated to somehow 
define _ALL_SOURCES for compiling for interix 3.5.  Without this, things like 
strcasecmp from strings.h won't get defined, and will prevent bfd from 
compiling.  This represents a broken bootstrap for that platform.

What was the resolution of the autoconf discussion?

I'm not sure.  Maybe Ralf knows?

Not sure if you're addressing me (but if you are, please Cc: me,

FWIW, the thread in question is
and mentions the patches applied to Autoconf and gnulib.
