First of all, I need to be honest here: I use Debian for WSL (which works surprisingly well, but might have unforeseen consequences) and I don't like 'magic' scripts that do all kind of things in my build environment that I don't know about.
So I kindly ignored the instructions in the INSTALL file and did what I thought was the correct thing to do ;-). Based on one of the compilation errors I got, I found out that at least I had to update GPGME on my system and I decided to update the configure.ac right away to help other stubborn people out there as well :-P.

Solving my compilation problems is probably not the right thing to discuss on this mailing list, so I will use one of the options you gave when needed.

This is nice and works perfectly. I will probably tweak some translations based on what I see on the screen now, and let you know if I made any changes.

Sure, I will put some effort in it the coming weeks and let you know when it is finished.
