In the repo, for all related software, it's done.
Note that versions since 2020-11-07 to 2021-07-03 have major problem with non-POSIX shell, which doesn't support $(..) construct.

Indeed, different versions of MinGW use different symbols to guard the declaration, and using those symbols in not future-proof enough, IME.
Removing the declaration is definitely the best solution.
Pushed the change removing the definition.
Mar 23 2022
Considering again, I think that just removing the definition of the struct timespec in npth.h is the best approach, given the situation, it's been there for MINGW64 and it's now in original MinGW.
Thank you. I understand the situation by looking at mingwrt-5.4.2-mingw32-src.tar.xz.

The version of MinGW is 5.4.x, the latest one. It is available from https://osdn.net/projects/mingw/releases.
MinGW64 is a fork of the above (original) MinGW. They have unfortunately diverged, thus the need to have these changes.

Also applied to gpgme.
Since there is no problem with libgpg-error 1.43, I applied it to other libraries: npth, libassuan, libksba, and ntbtls.

Thanks! I was able to compile the current source code of npth (1.7) (with gcc 7.1. and ldd (GNU libc) 2.3.2 ). The error error: unknown type name ‘pthread_rwlock_t’ didn't occour.
I have a little concern for glibc 2.34 (which has dummy libpthread and all is actually in libc).
Okay, any thing else missing in nPth?

Hello @gniibe, you did the last work on nPTh. Would you be so kind and look into this?
Sep 27 2021
These are great news. Thank you!
Pushed the change to libgpg-error and libgcrypt (1.9 and master).
Let us see if there are any problem(s) for that, I will apply it to other libraries when it will be found no problem.
Thank you for the information.
For the record, I put the link to the email submitted:

Oh, you are right, it's not upstream. It's actually applied to Homebrew (https://brew.sh/) libtool formula which is where I originally got libtool.m4, see:
I see your point. I'd like to locate/identify where the change comes from.
I think that what you refer by "new libtool.m4" is actually macOS local change (I mean, not from libtool upstream, AFAIK).
Could you please point out the source of the change?
Sep 21 2021
That would work, however we might hit this issue with a new macOS release. Would it make more sense to update to what the new libtool.m4 is doing? Linker flags are the same, it only changes the way they detect macOS versions:
That does indeed not look like something which could introduce a regression.
I misunderstood as if we need to update libtool from upstream.
macOS has low priority for us and I do not want to risk any regression.
About merging our local changes.
We have our own changes for ltmain.sh and libtool.m4.
And update from automake 1.16:
It's better to update the set of files from libtool:
build-aux/ltmain.sh m4/libtool.m4 m4/ltoptions.m4 m4/ltsugar.m4 m4/ltversion.m4 m4/lt~obsolete.m4
Our libtool was 2.4.2 + Debian patches + our local changes.
Debian patches are:
