The winsdk build fails because an icon file is missing.
The file is absent from source tarball qpid-cpp-mrg-0.7.946106-7.el5
The file was added to qpid trunk by tross on July 8,
The other files from r961962 are present, only the icon is missing.
That commit was also pulled into the release branch in git: http://mrg1.lab.bos.redhat.com/git/?p=qpid.git;a=tree;f=qpid/cpp/src/windows/resources;h=fcaf758344b95e82becbf384cc566fbba51f3ee9;hb=mrg_1.3.x
I suspect the issue is that it is a binary file being added via a patch. We may need to come up with a special way of handling that...
This issue is resolved. Source kit 0.7.946106-9 has the file.
