--- Comment #11 from Robin Watts <robin.watts at artifex.com> 2011-06-08 14:07:08 UTC ---
The latest version of gs in git (607afb7) contains changes to make windows
builds operate as consistently as possible with unix ones.

Under unix, all filenames/options/command lines/environment variables are UTF8
encoded. This means gs deals with them as UTF8 internally, and calls out to
system functions that accept the UTF8 and convert it back to the true unicode
format before processing.

Now, under windows, we get called through the unicode entrypoints, encode
everything into UTF8 and operate internally as UTF8. When we make calls to
system functions, we convert from UTF8 to unicode and call the unicode version
of such functions.

We'd be grateful for any testing that can be done on this code - hopefully this
should help here?
