Right. Take a look at port.h in the project. It defines stricmp to strcasecmp or the other way around depending on your config. Is it not working for you?
OK, I missed that one. The problem is that scriptlib.c doesn't include port.h.

Most of the problems reported previously have been fixed in CVS. The one remaining is the case sensitivity in font filenames.
Please keep reporting any other problems you find.

As for non-availability of Arial Narrow, can you suggest a common font as a replacement for this? We would like to keep the cluster names as narrow as reasonable.

Sticking to Microsoft web fonts, you could use Impact. This test page might help. Alternatively, you could try to find some suitable free fonts and include them with the map generator.

Please, no Impact.  Ugly fonts make me homicidal. Sad

I've found some suitable (narrow, sans-serif), readable, freeware fonts which could be used:

Kaffeesatz
Epitough
Bluehighway
Babel Sans (Does a very good Helvetica Condensed impersonation... which is what I used in my own map.)

"Space cannot be measured. It cannot be angered, it cannot be placated. It cannot be summed up. Space is there.
"Space is not large and it is not small. It does not live and it does not die. It does not offer truth and neither does it lie.
"Space is a remorseless, senseless, impersonal fact."

The map generator is filed under map
Neat, at the risk of punning, I'll check out this tool.  The google maps thing could definitely use this generated content.

I think I've used one of the output files already without asking, please complain if that's an issue. :/
