    I am trying to build Abiword on Win 98 using MSys and MinGW.

    The specific downloaded files that I have used are:



    abiword-2.0.2.tar.gz (which I unpacked into in C:\AWSource).

    I was really impressed with the ease with which I was able to set up
    MSYS and MinGW and start the build!

    However, when I go to /c/AWSource/Abi and run "make", the make
    terminates with the messages:
    Found libwv in peer directory
    PLEASE verify that VERSION in version.c is correct!!!
    make[5]: Entering directory `/c/AWSource/wv'
    Building on [MINGW32] with [LicensedTrademarks:Off Debug:Off BiDi:LTR
    Pango:Off XML:expat Pspell:Off Scripting:Off].
    In file included from wv.h:12,
                     from twips.c:6:
    libole2/ms-ole.h:32: conflicting types for `ssize_t'
    C:/SW/MSYS/1.0/mingw/include/sys/types.h:119: previous declaration of

    Can someone help me here? Have I got the wrong MinGW or MSYS version?
