Libtool has no wince maintainer. If we cannot even get simple questions
answered about WinCE, then we cannot ensure to keep Libtool working on
this system. Questions answered are a necessary, but not necessarily
sufficient condition for keeping a port working. Regular regression
testing is usually necessary as well, even if there are none to few
changes specific to some port. For systems Charles, the Peters, Bob,
Gary, and I have access to, regular testing is pretty much a given,
which sums up to something like 3 dozen different setups at least
(users do more testing, but I have less of an overview off-hand).
Right now I have one simple question: can I assume that the preprocessor
symbol _WIN32_WCE is defined for wince code, and usually not defined for
This question is the only impediment for this particular patch. Of
course, a regression test of Libtool with this patch on wince would be
much better even.
