Hi all,

this is what I came out when I was building MPlayer with
mingw64 on msys2.

  Some additional comments follow in the summary below.

Alexander Strasser (2):
  configure: iconv: Remove hack that added -L/usr/lib

    This pulled in cygwin/msys2 libs and ruined the build.
    The layout is /mingw64/lib for mingw64 and /usr/lib and
    msys stuff.

    Does anyone still need/use that hack?

  configure: Detect SChannel and enable FFmpeg https

    SChannel autodetection in configure modelled after GnuTLS

    1) I do not know if CONFIG_GNUTLS was needed in the
    first place, need to check what FFmpeg configure generates.
    It was added first in SVN r34326 .

    2) I am not sure why I added pkg-config flags in the
    enable case too. It's different from how almost all other
    configure checks behave.

Reimar Döffinger (1):
  configure: Drastically speed up generation of config.h/.asm/.mak

    Thank you Reimar for looking into this. On my machines
    it saves about half a minute on Linux and about 10 minutes
    on Windows.

    The generated files are somewhat messier because they always
    include "define XXX 0" for all items. I am not sure we
    should care much about that ATM, but it can be kind of
    confusing when searching/grepping those files.
