            Bug ID: 85120
           Summary: Regression: AX_C_FLOAT_WORDS_BIGENDIAN broken on mingw
           Product: cairo
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Windows (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: general
          Assignee: chris at chris-wilson.co.uk
          Reporter: dmacks at netspace.org

Passing along from inkscape-devel mailing list...

The patch closing Bug #63310 (git commit
7cfebce15228c88ee122edb8ba575f9a609e36f4) appears to be broken on platforms
that use filename extensions for linked executables. As of cairo-1.14.0, the
strings test hardcodes the AC_LINK_IFELSE executable name as "conftest", which
is correct for linux and osx, but mingw, it would be "conftest.exe" instead.
Using "conftest$ac_exeext" is probably the platform-independent way of getting
it correct.
