Currently at issue
is how a user of Wine actually gets gecko on their system. It can be
downloaded at wine startup, which is problematic for various reasons, or the
distro can package it. But what's needed are the actual win32 gecko
libraries, not a native Linux version, which sort of involves
using mingw and cross-compiling.
With our MinGW toolchain it should be perfectly possible to build the
wine-gecko library from source. The instructions at
are all that we need to create
a .spec file for it.
The only thing that needs attention is the contents of the wintools.zip
file. That file contains some binaries (like gmake.exe) which are
required for compilation (however, this is targeted for native Win32
environments). Those binaries probably aren't required when
cross-compiling but that's something which should be investigated.
If you're interesting I can try to create a .spec file for it. However,
if you want to have it in Fedora I don't want to be it's primary
maintainer (but co-maintaining is fine with me).
