You're talking about patches from windows users that were not taken
seriously. We have no bug tracker and many of us only work on nmap on
their spare time. I pay attention but sometimes miss things, so If a
patch of yours didn't get noticed, well I'm very sorry but it's also up
to you to send a reminder after a while...

Henri + Jacek,

First of all. I sent you my reply to Henri privately. Now your reply is showing up on the nmap-dev mailing-list. That's not really kosher.

The patch I remember that got sent to /dev/null, was the one
regarding OpenSSL applink.c from Andrey Olkhin:
 http://seclists.org/nmap-dev/2013/q1/210

Nothing happend. Then there are several small problems. Like the use of '\' in '#include' files. This creates problems when using 'gcc' to create dependencies. And the stuff around GetIpForwardTable2()
in route-win32.c. It didn't compile with MingW the last time I tried.

That said, I'd be really glad to read your suggestions on how to do it
better if you think I'm doing something wrong, because I care about
all users and portability in general.

So if you don't have Windows, maybe you have an option to cross-compile
to MingW. If you try that, you'll probably notice the problems with all the
MSVC-centric stuff in the Win32 port of Nmap/Ncat/Nping. All the #pragma
for example. etc. etc.
