Do you mean maintaining local patches? If so, that is a possibility,
but I would like to push changes upstream if possible.

I would very much prefer to keep upstream code clean. Also, as I do not
use windows, it will become a burden for me to guarantee that win32
compilation is tested on all future code changes once it is officially
included in the main lzip distribution.

If you or someone else writes and maintains a separate port, I will be
happy to link it from the lzip home page.


I understand your decision. Attached are the proper patches for Win32 builds.

First patch fixes binary read()/write(), the second fixes "%lld" vs "%I64d" warnings. Tested on Gentoo and MinGW.

I'll try to maintain and submit patches against future released versions to this list.

In the mean time, you can point anybody wanting a native win32 build to the 2 attached patches via the mailing list archive.
