In my experience, 'libtool' is relatively useless on native Win32 (MinGW).

A few months ago, I tried to compile VBISAM (1.03) on Win32 using MinGW.

It failed to compile due to a missing 'uid_t' file structure, among
other problems.

I do think that a native Win32 port is _NOT_ simple matter, as some
times there is no equivalent functionality on Win32.

And without a detailed understanding of the inner workings of VBISAM,
there is no way to determine potential pitfalls.

I have tried to get 'Trevor van Bremen' view on this issue, but did not
get a reply.

Until recently, Keiichi Takahashi at bitwalk, maintained the MinGW port
of OC.

Perhaps he can shed some light on the problems.
