Chris is correct, the code does a fair amount of P/Invoke into User32.

Luckly there are only 32 places where this happens, I went ahead and
ifdefed out all the pieces, and added warning messages for all the
missing routines, and packaged it as a tarball.

It does not currently work, the tarball am posting starts up, does not
paint what I believe is the area where the dock is, and I believe the
Makefile generated is incorrect as it is unable to find the string
resources (the names on the resources is wrong).

All my changes are attached as a patch, or available in a ready-to-use
tarball here:


This could be used as a starting point;  Maybe we could provide a
Managed.Helper.Winforms.dll that would provide similar functionality to
the one this library depends on, and eventually we could have a
"Guidelines to port you winforms app with lots of pinvokes".
