Subject: Problem of tools/database

Problem of tools/database

Hi, everybody

Yesterday, tools/database committed.
The following problems exist for tools/database.

1. Build failure for Cygwin and MinGW.
    Then tools/database does not execute on MS Windows.
    
    - Cygwin and MinGW's gcc not supports -Wno-pointer-sign
    - For Cygwin, firmware/export/debug.h:27, 29 parse error before "ATTRIBUTE_PRINTF"
    - For MinGW, -ldl not necessary.
    - For MinGW, apps/tagcache.c undefined reference to 'strcasestr'
                 apps/metadata/mp4.c undefined reference to 'errno'

2. tools/database depends on SDL library.
    Because tools/database is console PC application, SDL library can be made unnecessary.

3. HAVE_LCD_BITMAP does not define.
   Then database does not support codepage SJIS, GB2312, KSX1001, and BIG5.

4. When database is executed, it is not possible to change because ROCKBOX_DIR
   is decided at build.

5. I have already contributed a similar patch file to database application. (FS#9371)
   The above issue is solved to my patch file.

   For svn.19448's commit, it fails to apply the patch of FS#9371.
   Moreover, there are a lot of different parts of my patch with the change by Bj Should I update the patch file according to the source of the latest version?
 
I think that there are still a lot of problems though it was written
to have noticed roughly.

sincerely yours,

Yoshihisa Uchida
