Re: Can't build cygwin from CVS: configure error

Hannu E K Nevalainen wrote:

 Building the cvs version of the cygwin dll "OOTB" seems to be a no-no

$ export
$ cvs login
passwd: anoncvs
$ cvs -z3 co winsup

To get the cvs /src level stuff (configure among other things) I did
$ cvs -z3 co .

and then hit CTRL-C when it had arrived... (I guess there is a better way,
but I didn't bother tonight)

I'm using this script (extracted/converted from the FAQ) to attempt the
cygwin1.dll build.

echo -e "\n*** configure ***\n"
../configure --prefix=/install --enable-debug -v 2>&1 | tee configure.log

echo -e "\n*** make ***\n"
make 2>&1 | tee make.log

# echo -e "\n*** install ***\n"
# make install 2>&1 | tee install.log

/src/src contains winsup/, newlib/, libiberty/ among other things e.g.
Makefile and configure.

In using the script above, with a /src/src/build as *current* directory, the
make phase stops as shown below.

Here it still breaks on configure, but this time in winsup/w32api. It tries to feed the configure script: '--with-target-subdir=i686-pc-cygwin' but it doesn't recognize option target-subdir: 'invalid package name: target-subdir'.

Can you extract from your build log how it invokes configure in the winsup/w32api directory for you?
