As per cgf's suggestion, I intend to maintain lftp.
I downloaded your package and have a suggestion.
1- Install more documentation files. The following seem to be
Maybe INSTALL isn't that needed.
Also, I don't know if the following are mandatory for a port.I didn't use --disable-nls and configure seems to be trying to use nls:
1- You used --disable-nls. There are no translations and the
binary isn't linked against cygintl-2.dll. Personally I
couldn't care less since I don't use any and they waste space,
checking whether NLS is requested... yes
checking for GNU gettext in libc... no
checking for iconv... no, consider installing GNU libiconv
checking for GNU gettext in libintl... no
Do I need to install gettext or gettext-devel to use translations?
I may be wrong on this but I thought I had to wait for the libraries
lftp depends on (openssl, readline and ncurses) to get compiled with
1.5.x before I compile lftp with 1.5.x.
2- You compiled it with a 1.3.x dll. strings doesn't return
_fstat64 etc. With 1.5.x it should support large files. I never
tested it for a number of reasons, like no available space.
This one sounds like it may be a little tricky. I'm going to put this
one off for now (ie: it probably won't make into the first release).
BTW, I don't know if the following is a Windows limitation, but
I couldn't get anything downloaded with LFTP to store the time
from the server. I tested on FAT32 and NTFS. It does by default
on Linux, except on FAT32, where it behaves like in Cygwin.
I thought ftp:use-mdtm (from CVS) would do something, but it
doesn't, and from the name it'd only for FTP.
