I have been having a lot of problems compile AbiWord recently, but
hopefully someone can help me, because I am out of ideas :-)
Just after 0.99.2 was released I upgraded CygWin and installed the
Microsoft .net SDK. This should not have ruined anything, but since
_all_ compiles of AbiWord failed after this, I am a bit suspicious...
I now get a lot of different errors I have never seen before:
While checking expat:
The host system is detected as i686-pc-cygwin and the linker as GNU
ld, which seems a bit strange to me, but might be right.
and is anyone seeing this

While linking zlib:
fatal error C1083: Cannot open compiler generated file:
No such file or directory
I can get past this with an ugly hack to the TRANSFORM_TO_DOS_PATH
macro. But then it dies in libiconv:
localcharset.c(34) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file:
'strings.h': No such file or directory
It probably tries to use strings.h since the check fails to find
string.h - only string.h does exists in the INCLUDE path.
I have tried to reinstall CygWin and messing around a bit, but that
didn't help. Any ideas?
