hi there,

are there any windows users or maintainers out there?

i've tried to build gc6.7 on windows but it fails (see below).  so i
assume it's not currently maintained.  i've done some work to get
gctest working.  i can provide patches, project files or nmake files
for windows (or cmake files if you use that).

just would be nice if there are any windows guys out there who could
review or test some patches.

ta, jack.
