Proj4 should build OTB
well, we want it shared. add this to some lib srcfile: src/geocent.c
#ifdef __CYGWIN__
int main(int argc, char **argv) { }


./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man
make AM_LDFLAGS=-no-undefined
make install

Charles' ready to use package probably takes care of all this and of course provides shared libraries.


Well, as it turned out proj4 is not yet dll ready.

wrong. Charles' -Wl,--enable-runtime-pseudo-reloc fixed it.

This is a known issue and should be fixed upstream.

just for the records: just 2 tiny patches were needed. or go like this: libtoolize -f; autoreconf -f -i -s LDFLAGS=-Wl,--enable-runtime-pseudo-reloc ./configure --prefix=/usr \ --mandir=/usr/share/man make AM_LDFLAGS=-no-undefined make install

cygproj-0.dll: unstripped 595KB, stripped 188KB

gdal expects it as static.
no problem, it is small.

gdal: libtoolize -f; autoreconf -f -i -s ./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man \ --with-sqlite --with-xerces make && make install

After adding -Wl,--enable-runtime-pseudo-reloc and -no-undefined to the
$(LIBGDAL): target it builds shared also.
There need to be some port4 structs initialized.
I also had to -lproj manually to the LIBS in the makefile. (or patch
This is how I'll do gdal and postgis now, dependant on some not yet available shared libs:

sqlite is still not official (jaari: shared?), but I'll link against a shared cygsqlite3-0.dll nevertheless.

since there's no libodbc yet (gerrit? I didn't find it on, no ODBC support. those folks should recompile.

libjasper: <ping> has a strange
  dependency_libs=' -L/usr/X11R6/lib /usr/lib/'
line. This will for example link against /usr/X11R6/bin/libz.dll then...

I found out that a libpq.dll.a import lib is needed, so I'll add that to my postgresql-8.0.0cvs-2 todo list. And have that added upstream also.
And I really want to add the cyg prefix to some of their /usr/bin/ dll's (libpq only probably) to have them seperate from the mingw versions which flow around. (and libtool seems to prefer that. see python)
Persuading them to use libtool or at least some dll versioning will not be possible, but I'll have a try.

python (or libtool) is still kind of stupid.
without some tricks it will prevent building a shared libgdal:

*** Warning: linker path does not have real file for library -lpython2.3.dll.
*** I have the capability to make that library automatically link in when
*** you link to this library. But I can only do this if you have a
*** shared version of the library, which you do not appear to have
*** because I did check the linker path looking for a file starting
*** with libpython2.3.dll and none of the candidates passed a file format test
*** using a file magic. Last file checked: /usr/lib/python2.3/config/libpython2.3.dll.a

This looks like a libtool-1.5.10 bug. Should I really add /usr/bin/ to the linker path? There is a /usr/bin/libpython2.3.dll or does libtool only check for cyg prefixes?
even copying it to cygpython2.3.dll didn't work.
I also find the relinking on mode=install very annoying. Copying the libs verbatim, and fixing the la by hand will make it workable.
relink is not only unnecessary (charles will disagree), it also fails. (on python, jasper, pg)

Anyway, to focus on topic:
So we don't need any libgeotiff at all. Do we?
libgdal contains it and much more.

ok? or more? KAKADU is funny nick for JPEG2000 I assume.
MrSID is non-free. everything else can be added on request.

but geos-2.0.1 goes ok as shared. (with added -no-undefined)
/bin/cyggeos-2.dll  8MB
