You will get more feedback once I’ll be back from vacation ^^

Your assumption that it should work out if the box is correct.

However, it should not use probes, but pkg-config instead (I assume, msys provides correct .pc files).

I am currently working on the feature to implement this .

The protobuf module does not find the header or the libraries, it seems the search path is just empty, and for the libraries it looks for the wrong files. It searches protobuf.lib, but the file is named libprotobuf.a.

> There is little feedback on the patch, only that I could set the paths in my project file. Yes I could, but in my opinion it should work out of the box with a msys setup. But the wrong library names and suffixes I can not fix in my project file, or can I?
