Dear Humans,

I'm running into a spot of trouble that concerns the Git binaries for 
Windows, and I'm hoping that someone might be able to help me out.

These past 2 weeks I've been attempting to compile the Gstreamer SDK on the 
windows platform following the following guide:

Having followed all of the instructions I've gotten to the part of where I 
build the SDK with the 'bootstrap' command. Unfortunately, this eventually 
leads to 'patch.exe', that comes with Git, to crash. Basically giving me 
this output:

in C:/MinGW/msys/1.0/home/Lasse/cerbero/sources/build-tools
Applying patch 
Running command 'patch -p1 -f -i 
      0 [main] patch 6508 handle_exceptions: Exception: 
    531 [main] patch 6508 open_stackdumpfile: Dumping stack trace to 
***** Error running 'bootstrap' command:
Recipe 'gettext' failed at the build step 'extract'

The stackdump itself looks as follows (although I'd be surprised if anyone 
can get something intelligible out of it):

MSYS-1.0.12 Build:2011-07-20 17:52

This issue happens with both Git For Windows version 1.8.0 and 1.8.4. Does 
anyone have any ideas what the issue could be?

I've already used the dependancy walker to see if Git (and the patch.exe) 
was grabbing some DLLs from some uncommon places, but all of the DLLs it 
uses are either in the same folder as Git, or in the System32 folder... :/

Any help is much appreciated,
