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.
Nope, it still says the package doesn't support them...
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...).
Can you nonetheless give me some links?
I'm doing some google on the words "automake", "autotool", but found
nothing really enlightening
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.
OK. I can see what is changed... but I don't understamd what it means ^_^
I guess I'll pay "info automake" a major visit... it will take some
BTW: using autoupdate/libtoolize/automake/autoheader/autoconf I end up
having lotsa warnings
Then read the following:
After that, brush up on what's changed by checking out the info pages
for the various utilities, since libtool is a CVS version and automake
Then check out Chuck's dllhelpers, which contain exercises for people to
get used to using the autotools on Cygwin:
This should take about 1-2 weeks to learn, I'd estimate. You'll be glad
you did, since about 85% of the packages out there use some form of the
autotools. If you run into problems, your best resource is the
Autoconf/Automake/Libtool mailing lists. Just send a question there
with the output, and they should be able to help.
