It does work quite well, except for a few gotcha's:
- you need the mingw version of _G_config.h, which is installed when
you install the C++ runtime library. Unfortunately, my extra
mingw libraries package for cygwin doesn't have it (oversight).
- you have to make sure that *every* compile/link command uses the
Also, you *must* have mingw version of libm.a ... this is part of
egcs-1.1.1-mingw-libs.tar.gz that I distribute.
- need to fix the libraries that wxwin links in by default.
Specifically, I believe you need to delete -loldnames, which should
not have been there in the first place.
I simply used "c++" as the driver (wxwin uses gcc) to avoid specifying
-lstdc++ explicitly, and also specified the following in
CC = c++ -mno-cygwin
OPTIONS= -D__EGCS__ -mno-cygwin #-D__MINGW32__
WINLIBS= -lwinspool -lwinmm -lcomctl32 -lctl3d32 -lodbc32
(note: I may have missed one or two win32 specific import libraries
in WINLIBS, but most of the samples did build fine using above).
Since it works for me, it should work for others as well, especially given
that the machine I tested this on doesn't have anything different/special.
I hope Christine Pourcelot posts her experience here once she has things
This is of course for building mingw wxwin using Cygwin gcc; for native
Cygwin builds, it all works out of the box.
I will add this info to my howto on using -mno-cygwin ...
