Wonderful. Thanks for helping with the windows support. I know it's
incomplete and needs some help to get it finished.

Out of interest, were you able to run the tests 'make check'? One fails
for me, and I haven't had chance to figure out how to fix it.

Someone else (Dr. Volker Zell) caught this too and had a different patch
for this, which links to the $(LTLIBINTL) environment variable. I've
pushed that patch, since it seems more correct. Does it fix the issue
for you?
