I have another problem, brane. :-)

On the users@ list, I've been getting reports that my 1.1.2 .zip
includes a version of libintl that breaks existing 1.1.1 mod_dav_svn
installations. Apparently your 1.1.1 zip included libintl 0.14, and I
included 0.12? Or something like that.

In any case, I'm confused as to why it should matter at all. I've been
using the same win32 gettext-0.12 package for the last 8 months with no
problems. Why would it suddenly jump up and bite people? And is there
any way the win32 build system can check that gettext is a certain
minimum version?
