Removing the prefix should be fine, I guess. While at it, I would suggest to change the extension to .cpp as well. AFAIK the MSVC compiler does not recognize .cc files as C++ (perhaps MSVC 11 does, I have not checked yet and I am not into the standards either). Not that it really matters in the context of IcedTea, but there might be somebody in the future who would like to build IcedTea-Web on Windows with a proprietary toolchain.

I am currently tring to build the IcedTea-Web Plugin with MinGW64-w64 on Windows. So far, most of the code seams to be okay, despite a few necessary adjustments. Though, I found a specific dependency on glibc with the mkfifo() function. I am not sure whether to replace it with Windows specific code or whether there is a suitable implementation in Cygwin (could not check because the cygwin website was down lately). Any hints or ideas on that?
