A) FWICT, he isn't running autoheader/automake/autoconf, which means
configure is not being regenrated.
Yes, I pointed that out in another message.
B)He could try adding AC_LIBTOOL_WIN32_DLL right before AM_PROG_LIBTOOL
in configure.in, which should tell configure that building dlls is "OK".
However, I will note that the end result is "undefined symbol
Win@Main16" %50 of the time.
This symbol is deprecated in the -devel- versions of libtool.
C)Can you help him by referring him to the best documentation for the
whole process? I would try, but I learned mostly from trial and error.
(A howto for cygwin really should be written...).
I know, I know -- I've been promising to rewrite that section for a
while. I'll get to it eventually.
The best "documentation" is probably my dllhelpers package on cygutils.
D)As I have told you on countless occasions, I use autoupdate to get me
started. I then 'diff -u configure.in~ configure.in' to see what it
changed. After evaluating what it changed, I will then go in and hand
edit/revert anything else. This method works quite well in that
autoupdate 99% of the time does all the busywork for me, leaving it to
me to fix up any special cases or macros.
Yep, that's what I meant.
