Re: Cannot build latest CVS setup

I'm struggling with building the latest setup. Here's what I get:

Umm, bizarre!

$ cd setup && ./

 or see
Autotool bootstrapping complete.
$ # again, something's weird here

Harmless, but annoyingly verbose - at least, when it isn't our code causing it.
Perhaps we need to prod the freetype2 (Cygwin|upstream) maintainer.

Same errors with a fresh checkout.  Any ideas?  Am I doing something

No, but apparently something is odd with your system, since it works for me, following the commands you show above.

P.S. Incidentally, neither Max nor Brian (nor me :-)) are in the

Oh... yeah, probably ought to update that! :-)


P.P.S. It might be nice to make the word "README" on the setup homepage
a link to the CVS version (where it says "For instructions on how to
build setup.exe, see the README file included in its source.").
