Yes, I am aware :( Long term I hope windows 32bit gets the same occasional
love as zero does. I can produce occasional patches if time allows.

But in this case the error was in front of the computer, as Magnus pointed,
I may just have a broken build env.
Actually, that was not what I was trying to say. I think there's a bug in the configure script, but one that perhaps only shows up on 32-bit Windows when it fails to locate the runtime dll in the "normal" places. Probably missing "" somewhere.


Thanks for your fix, btw! removing the freetypelib building hassle is a
huge step toward an easier windows build setup.

This is a tricky one. Since Oracle no longer ships 32 bit JDKs for any
platform for the new releases, then there aren't resources or effort being
put into making sure it still builds. Our build systems might still
support it, but for how long?
It might effectively have to become a "port" that someone outside will
step up to maintain.
Not as different as AIX .. or as much effort perhaps .. but if someone
will do that I expect patches would not be refused.

I attempted to test the 32bit build but that seems to have bitrotted, I
ran into errors not having anything to do with your change.
