I gave a try (see https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/105440) and it
worked on Linux after having added a typedef for a template parameter
but then it failed on Jenkins because:
- it didn't build on Mac with "Could not find acceptable ICU library" and I
didn't find why
- it didn't build on Windows with "LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open
input file 'ifbclient.lib'" whereas I tried to use "ifbclient" everywhere in
existing patches. (BTW, just wonder we don't keep the original lib name)
after having found and fixed the "diff" problem on Windows (which needed
--strip-trailing-cr), quite disappointing.
Re thinking about what you indicated about Windows part, perhaps a first
step would be to simplify this part before trying to upgrade but clearly,
far too complicated for me...
