If you refering to libidn from http://www.gnu.org/software/libidn/ the
reason is because libidn uses automake, which does not work well under
You can try to use a custom Makefile to generate the library and tools
or to port it to the cmake buildsystem (see www.cmake.org for more

Packages for the installer could be build with the kdewin-packager tool
which is part of the kdewin-installer package.
To build a bin/lib and doc package for say mypackage with version 1.2.3
for mingw you may install the related package from the build dir to a
temporary location say c:\temp\mypackage-install and run
kdewin-packager -name mypackage -version 1.2.3 -type mingw -root
This will create up to three zip archives in the current directory .
If you like to have a source package too you should add the option
-srcroot followed by the directory of the source.
There are some more options, which could be displayed when running
kdewin-packager without any options.
