Yes, it has been a while and I had some hacks to compile it, but I never
got it running really nice.
I have some problems as I use the compile script to compile on windows,
where IIRC you cross-compile on Linux.
There are some issues with compiling libcio on windows:
1. libcdio needs iconv but ./configure under MinGW fails to detect iconv
checking for shared library run path origin... done
checking for iconv... no, consider installing GNU libiconv
checking for nl_langinfo and CODESET... no
configure: error: You must have iconv installed.
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
make: Nothing to be done for `install'.
I have now hacked my way around it by moving some libraries but we need
a proper solution of course.
2. iconv does not compile out of the box under MinGW, as there seem to
be issues in rock.c with S_ISLNK() and S_ISSOCK(). Macros are detected
properly in the ./configure process but during compilation it breaks on
some code using it.
I have hacked (quick and dirty) my way around them now, but still need
to finish compile and find a proper solution for building on the native
