[pulseaudio-discuss] Advice for building 4.0 for win32?

Status Update:

I managed to make PulseAudio 3.0 compile on mingw32 on the OBS for
opensuse 12.1, 12.2, and 12.3 (but not 13.1):

But when I tried to compile 4.0, it errored out on daemon/caps:77:9
because "uid" was not initialized:
I am an amateur at programming in C, but it appears to me that this is
a win32-specific bug in the PulseAudio 4.0 code.

Everyone is welcome to use the 3.0 builds and all future builds I make
on the OBS. I am not sure if the 3.0 builds work correctly at runtime
or not, I will figure that out tomorrow or Tuesday. If they do, I will
make a zip file containing the needed .dll & .exe files (and source
code) available for others to download and redistribute.
