Same with libintl. I think we should just use one, not both libint-1.dll
and libintl-2.dll. Let's agree to use the same dll's for all builds, and
let's also try not to use two different library versions in the same
distribution, if possible. I think we should put a high priority on that.
(Maybe even make a special build of a library)
Hi, all!

I have now updated all the libraries and compilers for my gnubg builds. This is what I currently use, and I think we should all use the same libraries.

The compiler is now gcc-3.2.3 (mingw special 20030504-1)

GTK+, GDK and Glib is all take from Tor's site.

Since GTK and glib from Tor's site depends on iconv.dll and libintl-1.dll, I think we all should make builds that depend only on these two dlls. DON'T TAKE libiconv OR libintl OR gettext LIBRARIES FROM ANY OTHER SITE! That's libiconv-1.9-w32.2.bin.woe32.zip <http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/gettext/libiconv-1.9-w32.2.bin.woe32.zip?download> at http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=25167
and http://www.gimp.org/~tml/gimp/win32/libintl-0.10.40-tml-20020904.zip
and http://www.gimp.org/~tml/gimp/win32/gettext-dev-0.10.40-20020904.zip

The following libraries is taken from GnuWin32, http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=23617

gdbm is version 1.8.0
libpng is version 1.2.4
zlib is version 1.1.4
libxml version 2.4.12
freetype version 2.1.4
libart 2.2.3 *

*) libart has now become a part of the GNOME sources, and the latest release is 2.2.12, never mind this, I think we should just stick to 2.2.3. OK?

(I think I will start providing readline support to the gnubg-no-gui version. I'm not sure where I'll take the library from.)

That's all! Can we agree to use the above listed program in our builds? Any other comments are welcome?

There's also an other possibillity. We could use the GTK runtime libraries
from the GIMP for Windows package. It will same the poeple who uses both
the gimp and gnubg the trouble of having the same gtk libraries to places
on their computer.
I'm checking out this possibility now. I would also like to discuss the the installation archive. It would be nice if we could join forces with the GIMP for Windows project, and thereby use the same GTK installation as they use. I'll check if it's possible and make a suggestion for this later today if I can. (The days goes fast....)
