If you tried a 64-bit build, then it is not yet supported on Windows.
Try the 32-bit build, it should work.

I was doing a 32-bit build.  There are still a few minor changes from
Fabrice Popineau that haven't made it into bzr yet.
(http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=9960#224)   With those
changes, the build succeeds.

Which changes, specifically, are needed?  I know only about one issue:
the one with _tzname.  The rest, to the best of my knowledge, are for
a 64-bit build.  If I'm wrong, I'd like to know which other changes
are still needed for the 32-bit build with MSVC.

I built from the latest bzr source and can confirm that the linum-mode
crash no longer occurs on my end.


There are only two changes listed in but 9960 message 224, both related to _tzname. (The patch is repeated for reference at the bottom of this message.) The changes are to lib/strftime.c and src/s/ms-w32.h.

If I back out Fabrice's proposed change to lib/strftime.c, the build succeeds through the compilation phase but fails to link because of unresolved external _tzname.

If I back out Fabrice's proposed change to src/s/ms-w32.h, compilation of ntlib.c fails with "time.h(270) : error C2090: function returns array".

So it appears that both changes are needed for the MSVC 32-bit build.
