  printf ("sizeof CRITICAL_SECTION = %u\n", (int)sizeof (CRITICAL_SECTION));
  printf ("sizeof    _gpgrt_lock_t = %u\n", (int)sizeof lk);

is easy to read code to print the size of a CRITICAL_SECTION.  And no,
we don't support building nativly on Window.
src/syscfg/lock-obj-pub.mingw32.h is the actual file I created manually
with the help of that little helper.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
