Re: icu-3.8-5 patches

Ken Brown schrieb:
I'm building a program (in cygwin-1.7) that comes with its own version of the icu library. I'd like to patch the source in the same way that cygwin's icu package does this. But there seems to be a packaging problem with the icu-3.8-5 source, so that I'm not sure exactly which patches should be applied:

$ cygport icu-3.8-5.cygport prep
 >>> Preparing icu-3.8-5
 >>> Unpacking source icu4c-3_8-src.tgz
*** Info: applying patch icu-3.8-setBreakType-public.diff:

 >>> Preparing working source directory
*** ERROR: patch icu-3.8-5.src.patch will not apply

There is some overlap between the successfully applied patches and those in icu-3.8-5.src.patch, but I don't think either set of patches contains the other. Can someone clarify for me what the actual source patches should be?

This is easy: icu-3.8-5.src.patch already contains the two extra patches.

This is harder:
icu-3.8-5.cygwin.patch will also not apply automatically by cygport
due to a cygport problem with SRC_DIR containing a "/".

* check icu/source/source/CYGWIN_PATCHES and move it to
