Re: [ITP] libungif-4.1.0-1
I don't like "info" interface, I'm not used to it yet, I do prefer the
converted HTML pages 0=)
Problem is.. what is libtool? 0=)
'info libtool' should help...
Well one of the reasons why I work on cygwin is just to learn... I
guess it is time to do some google:libtool and go finding a
FAQ/manual about it
(grrr, www.gnu.org is down... I hope libtool manual's mirror at
www.delorie.com is fresh enough)
But you don't. If the package (that'd be you) includes a complete
patch including all of the relibtoolized bits, then the end user need
only "./configure; make'.
...but I used method two to package it, so people usn't using
"./configure; make", just "./libungif-4.1.0-2.sh all" and as I have
modificed the script himself, nothing changes to people.
In my point of view requiring installed packages is better than
including a 900kb patch, even if it's automatically generated, this if
things are then not more compilated to people, and they aren't.
