Re: Proposing TCM as a cygwin package

Hi Daniel,

I removed the duplicate man-directory and fixed the typo in setup.hint that Christopher reported.

But now I ran into another problem, that keeps me from releasing the new packages: TCM does not run on Cygwin 1.5, because it coredumps on startup (SIGSEGV).

I noticed that 1.5 is more picky about memory issues than 1.3. It's probably some off-by-one error in TCM, that did not occur so far on 1.3, but I'll have to recompile with debugging turned on to find out.

I'll let you know when new packages are available.

The binary package includes:
cygwindoc	usr/doc/Cygwin/tcm-2.20.README
bindir		usr/X11R6/bin/
docdir		usr/X11R6/doc/tcm-2.20/
man1dir		usr/X11R6/doc/tcm-2.20/man/man1/
man1dir		usr/X11R6/man/man1/

I am not 100% sure about including everything under usr/X11R6/, but I'm
mostly concerned about having duplicate man1 directories under
usr/X11R6/man/man1/ and usr/X11R6/doc/tcm-2.20/. Also, since this package
was proposed, the expected location for the Cygwin README has changed to [I
believe] usr/share/doc/Cygwin/tcm-2.20.README, which is something to keep in
mind if you do release a -2.

Sorry if any of this has been brought up before. This is the oldest
review-less package in the PPL, so if these issues have been addressed just
point me to the relevant archive entries.
