Fixed in Ardour 5.1-8-g48d085a

but make sure to read

You're basically compiling Ardour as a hybrid Windows exe. It's not a great idea for everything outside academics.

I already read that many times.

So why not to remove the ability to compile Ardour with VST plugins handling option ?

It's handy for testing, benchmarking, debugging and to get yet another compiler/debugger opinion. Same reason there's a MSVC project for Ardour, while we do use mingw x-compilation for official binaries.

There are also custom appliances: Limited set of known good plugins and a specific rt-patched version of wine; check avlinux for example.

Speaking of which: Depending on which version of the wine-headers you use, you may have to remove the "__MINGW32__" define in libs/fluidsynth/wscript (see the comment there).

The issue is known upstream at wine.

Thanks for your answers, I was precisely thinking of AVLinux.
