Regarding error.h.diff: The mismatch between libiconv and gnulib, introduced on 2012-01-06, was corrected on 2012-01-15.

Regarding progname.h.diff: There is no and was no mismatch.

If you have a problem with the 'patch' step of these files, probably it's because some of these files (error.h, error.h.diff, etc.) have Windows end-of-line conventions (CR LF) and some others have Unix end-of-line conventions (LF). The fix is to do yourself a favour: Use Unix end-of-line conventions exclusively.

Building libiconv from repository fails at autogen.sh with the patches error.h.diff and progname.h.diff. Looks like GNULIB has adopted these patches and is no longer necessary:

rm gnulib-local/lib/error.h.diff
rm gnulib-local/lib/progname.h.diff

This fixes autogen.sh and builds without errors. Also build with mingw without errors.
