Re: [ITP] libgcrypt-1.2.0-2


Sorry, my fault, misread your repliy.  I already described why I don't
do it dynamically.  Anyway, what is the problem with the great patches?

You can open an editor and search for +++ and you'll see that the
interesting files are always &

Patchfiles are not for reading, though.

What you can do is: open the buildscript of any package and add the
following to the mkpatch function: -x '' -x 'configure' \
-x '' -x 'aclocal.m4' -x 'config.sub' -x 'missing' and so on,
then you'll get a patchfile with only the relevant changes.  What about
including a function in the g-b-s to create such a small patch in
CYGWIN-PATCHES and deliver this minimal patch too?
At least for libgcrypt, libgpg-error and gnupg you can do:

$ ./<package-name>.sh prep
$ ./<package-name>.sh conf
$ ./<package-name>.sh devspkg

In <package-name> you will then find the bare,
short patch without the autotool stuff.
