Vim compilation : windres: unexpected version string length 68 != 32 + 8

CLAVIER Jean-Christophe
Hi,
I try to compile Vim to enable support for perl and python
When I look at tutorials for this, it seems very simple but when I do it
myself, I have the message :

    windres gobj/vimres.res gobj/vimrc.o
    windres: unexpected version string length 68 != 32 + 8
    mingw32-make: *** [gobj/vimrc.o] Error 1

I looked around and found a similar error
[here](http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.par/2012/03/msg5316.html)
But when I try to modify my vim.rc file the way explained in the pp.rc,
it doesn't work.

I'm not used to compile so my mistake may be a big one but i can't see it.

I'm using windows 7, minGW has been downloaded yesterday. Perl is 5.16
and python 2.7.3

Thanks for your replies.

Hi,

FYI.  The issue is related to a bug in the windres-tool about
importing binary version-resource information.  Patch for fixing this
issue is sent to binutils' ML.

CLAVIER Jean-Christophe
Thank you.
I'm sorry but I couldn't find the patch you mention.
I tried to download binutils from there
(http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/binutils/) but i could find only sources and I'm
really not used with compilation process (till now, the few tries i had
were always long and failed at the end).
Is there a way to have a binary version of a working winres or another
way to turn the problem around ?

You want the development source from the binutils VCS.

You could downgrade to the previous version of binutils.

mingw-get install --reinstall binutils=2.22-1
