Summary0001270: conflicting types for 'snprintf' when building with mingw

I've followed instructions to build graphviz on Windows as stated here: [^]

But on make, I got "conflicting types for 'snprintf'" and the compilation stops.
Additional Information

[erg] Despite the suggestions we give at [^]

we really don't support building Graphviz from source on Windows, especially given the number of possible
platforms (raw Windows, uwin, mingw, cygwin). That said, Glen Low claims that he will soon have the
Makefiles in shape, so that one can just run


on mingw, and Graphviz will build correctly.

[glen low] The sources as of 20080303 should build correctly in MinGW. The following configure line will work
./configure --disable-swig --without-x --without-tclsh --with-ipsepcola
make install

The only thing is for --with-ipsepcola and any other C++ code, you'll have to rename your /usr/lib/ to something else before building.

The install will be to /usr/local. All the binary files and libraries are in bin and include dynamic libraries as well as lefty (a graph viewer), and the binaries are independent of MinGW.

Do let me know how your own build goes.
