[Bacula-devel] 2.4.0 Win32 Patches unchanged from 2.2.8!

Greetings folks!

I love Bacula!

I'm trying to compile, for the first time, the win32 binary.  I'm doing this 
under SuSE 10.3 x64. I attempted to do this with 2.2.8, but there was an 
unsatisfied requirement for libwxmsw28_core.a and libwxmsw28.a, which both 
came through in their 27 equivalents.  Ha ha ... I tried to symlink them but 
that wasn't going to fly and attempts to put wxWidgets 2.8.7 into the build 
process didn't work with my current experience.

So, on to Bacula 2.4.0 which will be my production environment anyway.  I 
think I was one of the first downloaders!  The counts all said 0 on Source 

All the patches in src/win32/patches are identical in both the 2.2.8 release 
and the 2.4.0 release ... I believe this is a simple oversight as 2.4.0's 
build-depkgs-mingw32 has been modified quite a bit and asks for different 
patches, such as line 324 which asks for "do_patch wxWidgets.patch",
which isn't present.

I am aware that the scripts are provided as-is but I'm sure it would be an 
easy fix to repackage with the correct patch contents, or if anyone could let 
me know where to get the correct patches, that too would be an enormous help.

I read that Scott is on what is doubtless a well deserved vacation!  This need 
isn't that urgent ... Windows is a legacy OS here anyway as we'll be 100% 
Linux in a couple of months.

Thanks for a remarkable product.  I'm amazed at the quality and capabilities 
of Bacula.
