Re: [ITP] libungif-4.1.0-1
Steven's 'mkdll.sh' script is just plain wrong. libungif is a
libtoolized package, you should just relibtoolize.
Problem is.. what is libtool? 0=)
Well one of the reasons why I work on cygwin is just to learn... I guess

www.delorie.com is fresh enough)

Now I understand fully all those messages "relibtoolized source package"
vs "libtoolize in the script"... I think I prefer the latter, the patch
is much cleaner and the user that wants to rebuild the package just

I posted it some time ago when Harold thought he had more time -- I

BTW, you can also relibtoolize glib (and probably gtk) in a similar way.

Uh.. heard something like that... once or twice in the present message ;)
OK, I prepared the package using "aclocal && libtoolize --force" at the
beginning of the "conf" phase.
Only difference from the past package is that instead of
usr/bin/cygungif.dll it creates usr/bin/cygungif-4.dll, is this
