#218: mapnik c++ library

    Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new                        
Priority:  major        |   Component:  Documentation

 mapnik is only packaged as a python module.

 On the c++ side, currently the mapnik and freetype headers and the mapnik
 import library are available, but to build a C++ application on top
 mapnik, some missing packages are needed : icu, boost, ltdl

 I managed to build an application on top of mapnik by installing :

 - icu4c-4_2_1-Win32-msvc9.zip available at http://icu-

 - ltdl available at http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/libtool.htm

 - boost available at http://www.boostpro.com/download/ (version 1.44 works

 Would it be possible have those packages available directly in OSGeo4w ?
