I have finally cross compiled and verified successfully vlc zipped (.zip
and .7z) binaries on ubuntu 12.04 using the mingw 3.0
package i.e.


with instructions http://wiki.videolan.org/Win32Compile

and some tweaks as suggested in vlc forums with recompilation of qt4.8.2
that is downloaded during install.

I was getting npapi errors during make package-win32
and modified the extra/package/win32/package.mak) to skip npapi related
things as suggested at one of vlc forum posts.

Now my .zip and .7z folders are generated and run fine on windows, but nsis
installer is not generated with the following error log
near the end
Compressing  vlc-2.0.4/sdk/lib/libvlc.dll.a
Compressing  vlc-2.0.4/sdk/lib/libvlccore.dll.a

Everything is Ok
make: *** No rule to make target `extras/package/win32/UAC/runas.cpp',
needed by `..//vlc-2.0.4cross/win32/vlc-2.0.4/NSIS/UAC.dll'.  Stop.

Also i cannot find a ruas.cpp file on my machine. Any pointers to resolve
this would be highly appreciated.
