Code for 38.3.0 ESR is failing to compile with mingw-w64
https://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-esr38/rev/be6396f0eb7c fails to compile with mingw-w64 and is likely going to get shipped in Firefox 38.3.0 ESR. The bug on Mozilla's side is https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1199118.
If Mozilla does not get this fixed on esr38 we either need to backport a patch or come up with one ourselves. glandium and Mike hashed things out in #build:
00:47 < mikeperry> can we link against those libs in an alternate way? 00:47 < glandium> OS_LIBS += ['wintrust', 'crypt32'] in the corresponding moz.build 00:51 < mikeperry> so under the existing CONFIG['MOZ_WIDGET_TOOLKIT'] == 'windows' check in toolkit/mozapps/update/common/moz.build perhaps? 00:51 < glandium> mikeperry: sounds right 00:53 < mikeperry> am wondering if should use if CONFIG['OS_ARCH'] == 'WINNT' instead 00:53 < glandium> mikeperry: it doesn't really matter
