[bug-gnu-libiconv] Two Version String Resource Issues

These may have been reported before, but I encountered them when trying to compile V 1.12 "as is" using MinGW & MSYS on Windows XP and had to search the Internet for possible solutions as I am no C developer:

1. sed (2002-4-30) reports errors in the regular expressions of ../windows/windres-options lines 17, 22 and 27: Extra characters after command. Two solutions have been suggested at


2. Even after correcting this issue the version string resource isn't linked into the binary although it compiles properly. The reason for this is to be found in ../lib/makefile.in, lines 69/70: Similar to the patch solution provided at <http://johnnypops.demon.co.uk/mingw/libiconv-use-rc.patch> adding "-Wl,libiconv.res" in line 70 solves it, but you'll probably want a more generic solution for the OBJECTS_RES_... switch to keep working properly.
