The 32bit /usr/i686-w64-mingw32/bin/libunistring-2.dll is missing in the built package, because libtool fails to locate libiconv.dll under fakeroot during make install:

*** Warning: linker path does not have real file for library -liconv.
*** using a file magic. Last file checked: /usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/lib/libiconv.dll.a
*** libtool will only create a static version of it.
make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/il/builds/mingw-w64-libunistring/src/libunistring-0.9.10/build-x86_64-w64-mingw32/lib'

I can't compile my libcurl project statically on mingw-w64, I can use every other dependences libs statically to get rid of the DLLs, but this one fails to compile with following linker errors (related to uninorm.h) :

undefined reference to '__imp_uninorm_nfc'
undefined reference to '__imp_uninorm_nfc'
undefined reference to '__imp_UC_CATEGORY_M'
undefined reference to '__imp_uninorm_nfc'

  • I use the other AUR packages (mingw-w64-gcc, mingw-w64-curl ...etc)
  • The static file libunistring.a is created when building the package
  • I use curl's -DCURL_STATICLIB flag

The error disappears when I use the dynamic version :
LDFLAGS = -l:libunistring.a -> fails
LDFLAGS = -lunistring -> compiles, but need of DLL

Do you know if I'm doing something wrong, or if it's a bug ?

Thanks a lot

Dn't flag until the native package has been updated in official repo

Could it link to instead of ftp ?
It hangs from my machine when downloading.

Hello again,

So it seems we need to depend on win-iconv instead of libiconv (see fontconfig)
