Fix UTF8 support using vanilla guichan source

This whole issue has been discussed a lot. Our problem is we need to modify a line in guichan's source (in key.hpp) to fully support UTF8 widgets. This forces us to provide guichan in the <FIFE>/ext directory (with the modified key.hpp file). Only linux and windows currently make use of the patched version of guichan. RPM packages use vanilla guichan. The vanilla guichan 0.8.2 does not compile on darwin but has a MacPort? available but that also means we cannot use the patched version of key.hpp.

This ticket is to find a way to use vanilla guichan while still fully supporting UTF8 widgets. Either that or convince the guichan maintainers to add our patch.

See ticket #383 for more information.

  • Milestone changed from 0.5.0 to 0.3.4

Moving to 0.3.4.

Possible solution for this is to fork guichan and release our own package (could be called FIFEChan).
