SPECLIST has still got me stuck. I've managed to set up almost
everything else, except perhaps for a unistd.h replacement. Found a
dirent.h and a stdint.h no problemo. This SPECLIST code screams for
C++ templates. It looks very fragile and hard to debug. Certainly,
trying to deal with it in MSVC is a miserable experience. I haven't
figured out if the reason it works at all is GCC specific, or if I've
run into a MSVC deficiency, or something else.
Christian, thanks for the offer of the MinGW toolchain on the Freeciv
FTP site. For now I will keep going with MSVC, as I have made much
more progress with that than trying to get Eclipse to work.
