As an aside, to compile with a different prefix using cygport requires a
bit of work right now, because AFAIK cygport doesn't support anything
for how I did it. Basically I had to copy cygport's cygconf() function
and modify it, ditto cygports cyginstall() function. Then, from my
src_compile() and src_install() I called my copies.
That's what was needed to put autoconf into /opt/gcc-tools/epoch2/ but
other, more complex packages -- and they don't get much more complex
that gcc! -- might need even more custom overrides.
Thanks, I will check it out. (btw, libtool too needs to get an epoch
version, having problems with macro version mismatches in gcc
I added --prefix=/somewhere to CYGCONF_ARGS to override cygport defaults
by taking advantage of autotool's behavior
(...configure...--prefix=/usr...--prefix=/somewhere), but I don't think
P.S. Hey, Yaakov -- any chance cygport could start supporting custom
prefixes? Maybe by inheriting some special cygclass?
Do also give the ability to tell cygport to exclude some libtool files
from getting fixed up, thanks.
