Switching to all VC++ would fix problems with QT, as well as create
many others with myth. I started to see the difficulty involved, when
I tried to just use it to build from the makefile for libavcodec.
Just running nmake (the VS equivalent of make) yielded lots of
definitions for include files that just aren't there. I think leaving
it as a last resort to turn to is a better idea at this point. I
found some things about linking VC++ dlls with mingw online, but
nothing has really seemed to work yet. I think for now we're just at
a wall deciding what compiler to go with and route to go with then.
I'm waiting from the kde-cygwin list about some more ideas about
linking the QT dll built in VC++ with cygwin. As of right now that is
ideal. It is quite clear that there is a bug involving iterators,
however; when building QT with mingw. If you or anyone else on the
list has some input what we could do then feel free to voice.
BTW, I believe that the compiler (not the IDE) for VC++ is freely
avail, if you just want to build QT with it.
