Some work is being done to understand if the MinGW approach is feasibile. The standalone lightspark is completely portable, while the plugin should be partly rewritten for windows. The needed libraries for a MinGW build are boost, ftgl, glibmm, SDL, libiconv, llvm, cairo, gettext, libsigc++, pcre, glew, curl, libxml2, libxml++, pixman, zlib, glib, freetype, pthreads-win32, glibmm

Thank you for creating a Windows port! Lightspark 0.5.3 was ported to Windows. Lightspark 0.5.3 includes a Firefox plug-in. That plug-in is compatible with Windows. Question: Howto to compile Lightspark from source code for Windows and what MSVC library or MinGW library should I use? Are there any instructions for compilations?
