> Thank you Reino. I think you're right. The current pkg config file is tailored for unix systems not windows. I see that even the check for its functionality (tests/pkgconfig.sh) is disabled under windows. Would you like to suggest a patch (or better merge request) to handle windows in the pc file?
I would if I could, but I simply don't have the know-how. I don't know GnuTLS's inner workings that good either.
I just came around the corner last year compiling stuff for the first time. I've learned a lot and I'm happy I've managed to solve this issue with FFmpeg for now.
All I know is that while configuring GnuTLS it would have to detect mingw32 / mingw64 (Windows) and add -lcrypt32 to the pc file.
