One other proposal for cherrypicking to maint-5.12.
Message ID:
I don't know if this would be required for building off a tarball, and
I'm not sure if I'm the only Win32 porter with this trouble, but I've
been building a Strawberry-ish maint-5.12 checkout this morning, and I
needed to apply Florian's change at
in order to get perl to build.  (I'm not saying anything about the need
for the "Makefile" part of the change - but I don't know if you can
cherrypick half a change, either.)

Just throwing this out there - I'd +1 it if I could...

(I can always patch the file in Strawberry's build process for 5.12.2 if
you don't decide to cherrypick it. But it would be nice for people doing
unpatched Win32 gcc builds if you did.)
