Building Mutt: configure: invalid value of canonical build
Mon Aug 30 22:59:00 GMT 2010
The mutt mail reader shipping with Cygwin does not have SMTP enabled,
which I'd like to give a try. So I tried to build mutt, but encountered
The machine is 64-Bit PC running Win7/64/Pro, and Cygwin, of course.
I have both gcc 3 and 4 installed.
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mutt --build=i686-pc \
--enable-imap --enable-smtp --enable-hcache --with-regex --with-ssl
Note that I specified a (wrong) --build option, but read on and see
below. Independently of that --build option, I got the following error:
configure: error: cannot run /bin/sh ./config.sub
The solution is easy:
Got the same for install-sh, by the way.
Now on to the main error. Trying again the same configure line.
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
/bin/sh: /usr/src/mutt-1.5.20-1.milu/orig/missing: No such file or directory
configure: WARNING: `missing' script is too old or missing
... [don't know if the above is a problem]
checking build system type...
configure: error: invalid value of canonical build
It is only after receiving an error because of the script's failure to
guess the build system that I added the --build option to configure.
But obviously I didn't fill in a correct value. What should I try?
