Thanks Keith,

That patch fixes the aforementioned issues with off_t and _fsize_t.

However there are some other errors when compiling allegro programs with the C++11 standard I mentioned before. I've narrowed down the cause to #including <string.h> before #including <string>, as was happening with my library. It causes all the undefined function errors listed below. It can be fixed by including <string> *before* <string.h> or compiling as gnu++11.

Trying to compile this simple example program with the following command (mingw32-g++ -Wall -O0 -std=c++11 -o mt.exe mt.cpp) causes the errors to appear :

#include <string.h>
#include <string>

int main(int argc , char** argv) {
   return 0;
}

The errors are as listed :

I haven't had time to determine the exact cause of this, but I hoped it would be enough to give you to go on in order to make a fix. It also happens if you include <cstring> before <string>.
