As far as I understand the problem: if some program wants to use
libFLAC.lib, it also has to be linked with win_utf8_io, which is
a bit surprising because a program doesnt really need this library,
and this requirement isn't documented anywhere... And since win_utf8_io
is basically a 'compatibility' layer between libFLAC and Windows,
it makes sense to include win_utf8_io into libFLAC. Do I understand
it right?

Then IMHO all three build systems (configure && make, Makefile.lite
and MSVC) should be synchronized with each other, and your first patch
seems better.


I have some patches, but they either modify MSVC .vcxproj files,
or win_utf8_io.c/.h, so they conflict with patches from Evan Ramos.
So should they be applied? rejected? postponed until after flac 1.3.2?
