Re: [ITP] ImageMagick

Thanks. Can you justify the following flags you passed:

  --disable-largefile --without-frozenpaths \
  --with-magick-plus-plus --without-perl -without-wmf

--without-perl is required because the PerlMagick build fails.
--without-wmf is detected automatically.
--with-magick-plus-plus is detected automatically.
--without-frozenpaths is a mystery to me.  I don't know what it does.

Additionally, looks for "convert":

AC_PATH_PROG(ConvertDelegate, "$ConvertDelegateDefault", "$ConvertDelegateDefault")

On Windows, it finds:

checking for convert... /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/system32/convert

That is no good. It seems that --without-frozenpaths might prevent configure for looking for convert as an installed app, but I can't tell for sure. If not, is there any other way to tell AC_PATH_PROG to ignore an installed version or to not look for something?
