Yes, probably something like that. I think it failed the first time because there was a bug (the one I introduced in a967613911f7), then probably changed to src/backend and ran compiles there which probably worked fine, leading to commit fa838b555f90. I might or might not have removed the complete build dir instead of "make distclean"; not sure TBH. As I recall, I tried a couple of builds after I pushed the fix commit and couldn't get them to run at all. But since I saw in buildfarm that other mingw builds were working, I lost interest. Then I deleted the mingw build tree and didn't get back to retrying. TBH the only reason I mingled with mingw at all is that nobody seems interested in fixing Win32 issues, and this patch had been lingering for far too long. > Or did you not do a VPATH build the second time?
