 I've tried to extract only these things that seems to be necessary to
 compile in osgeo4w.

 The MinGW cruft was removed from osgeo4w (maybe still not complete, but
 anyway).  I updated my package.sh accordingly (see ticket #1271).

 For starters the mingw-libs package with the library copies (foo.lib =>
 libfoo.a) are gone and package.sh now copies them before running
 That's probably what hits you here.


 some comments:

 - grass64svn_osgeo4w_gdal18_geos.patch: gdal-config and geos-config seem
 not be delivered anymore by osgeo4w, so therefore included in the grass-

 - there are compiling errors in lib/proj, therefore

 - it seems that osgeo4w doesn't include projects.h, therefore
 grass64svn_osgeo4w_gregion.patch. but maybe this should be an osgeo4w-

 best regards
