A few thoughts:

1. You need to use the most recent XEmacs sources from mercurial.

2. You must have an old version of libpng installed, because 21.4.22
won't compile with the newer libpng (some structure members are

3. You will also need to add:

#define stricmp strcasecmp

to src/s/cygwin32.h

4. I will review the contents of xemacs-21.4.22-1.src.patch and
promote at least your developer info and the above stricmp hack to the
mercurial repo.

5. I have promised to release 21.4.23, so I will do that shortly after #4 above.
