I tried to port it to Windows but failed to get the appropiate libraries to 
compile successfully.
So I decided to port your program to Python (which appears to me, being 
much better suited than "raw" C code for this task...) and then, honoring 
Python's "batteries included" philosophy, I had no need for any external 
library (and that makes me happy :) )

In the process I noticed the following:
- in CrunchFile, you forgot to initialize the `offset` variable
- the tests in CrunchFile must be reordered, utf32le_bom is never fired 
because it's masked by utf16le_bom which comes first.

If anyone wants the Python version, just tell me.
