Probably not. From my POV it's a bug in the e2fsprogs package to
provide a libuuid.a lib. It should rely on the w32api provided file and
if something's missing, it should be added there.
The libuuid from e2fsprogs is completely unrelated to the w32api
UUID.DLL implib. FWIW, any *NIX software that I've seen obviously wants
the e2fsprogs version, but if libuuid-devel is installed (in /usr/lib)
then you can't link against the w32api implib with a simple -luuid.
However, unfortunately the e2fsprogs package is orphaned right now. If
somebody would like to step up as maintainer, please see
