on windows xp with fossil [dda5b18b0d] compiled using mingw32, the extras command produces an empty list, while the binary downloaded from the fossil website lists all the extra files.

That might very will be a bug in MinGW. Which MinGW version are you using?

I use mingw32 with gcc 4.8.1 from www.mingw.org, but I've compiled version-1.27 with it using the same options (TCL, TCL_STUBS and SSL) and the extras command works fine.

Thanks! Yes, I can reproduce it (normally I use MinGW-w64, which works fine). This certainly is a bug in latest MinGW: The changes in MinGW break operation on Windows XP, that's why in fossil the compile flag -D_USE_32BIT_TIME_T was added. But apparently adding -D_USE_32BIT_TIME_T breaks MinGW's dirent.h functions. I will create a minimal example, and report it to the MinGW people. Now marked as External_Bug. Conclusion: If you need Windows XP compatibility and <dirent.h>, don't upgrade to MinGW-4.0, but either use MinGW-w64 or an earlier MinGW version....

Bug is reported to MinGW now:

A solution for this bug is committed to MinGW-4.0's GIT repository (2014-01-30). See: https://sourceforge.net/p/mingw/mingw-org-wsl/ci/f70b9c84027bd3b1e3b7dc0df4827fafd23ecf9a/
