I'm having trouble accessing the gnustep_base_version variable in preface.m
under my win32/msys environment.
I have a feeling the compiler is not exporting the variables as expected in
the dll.

I'm trying this simply to display the dll version along side my app's version
number - mostly to ensure my users aren't accidentally using the wrong version
of the library.

Compiled with gcc version 3.4.2 (mingw-special)

I've tried declaring the variable as "__declspec(dllimport) extern const char
* gnustep_base_version" and "extern const char * gnustep_base_version" with no
luck. Maybe I'm missing something obvious.

However, it might be a bit nicer to return this variable with a simple

Any thoughts?
