[PATCH] Add a "selfcontained" mode to provide missing headers on windows

Ulf Hermann ulf.hermann@qt.io
Wed May 3 20:35:00 GMT 2017


With MSVC there is no features.h, uid_t, gid_t, mode_t, and pid_t are
not defined and there is also no elf.h. To make it possible to build
other software against libelf and libdw, install our own version of
elf.h, and a bare-bones features.h that provides exactly the above
declarations. The features.h declarations are provided like mingw
defines them.
