- Subject: libresolv and resolv.h
in trying to port new rsync-2.4.7 (preview 4) I discovered that CygWin
doesn't contain a pre-compiled libresolv, I did some search on the
mailing list and discovered that can be compiled OOTB from some bind
version (that is neither 9.2.0 or 8.2.5)... but I was thinking:
a) of course "everyone can compile it, as it's easy", but couln'd a
precompiled package be more useful?
b) is really needed to build a resolver when the underlying winsock
already do that? couln't a "stub" libresolv be easier and smaller to do?
