Re: Problem making rxvt

Mark Blackburn wrote:

Did you read /usr/doc/Cygwin/rxvt-2.7.10.README ? It says to configure like so:

./configure --enable-utmp --enable-wtmp --enable-lastlog \
--enable-xpm-background  --enable-menubar --enable-rxvt-scroll \
--enable-next-scroll --enable-xterm-scroll --enable-frills \
--enable-linespace --enable-mousewheel --enable-keepscrolling \
--enable-old-selection --enable-transparency \
--with-xpm-includes=`pwd`/W11/X11 --with-xpm-library=`pwd`/W11/lib \
--with-x-library=`pwd`/W11/lib \
--enable-languages --with-encoding=noenc \
CFLAGS="-O -g -W -I`pwd`/W11" \
LDFLAGS="-mwindows -Wl,--subsystem,console" \

When I configure like that the output looks more like this:

My configure/make score is just barely above zero. I'd be sure it was all me if it was indeed zero - but not quite.

Latest attempt: rxvt-2.7.10
My file layout: ~/Build/rxvt/rxvt-2-7-10=untarred package; ~/Build/rxvt/i686-pc-cygwin=build directory
configure & make are run from outside the source tree - I know it sometimes matters.

Configure shows nothing exciting. [log attached]
Make gets into a loop in subdirectory W11 ! Unlimited recursive makes here.

OK, Now I've reconciled my configure options with those in the document, and defined the libraries as shown.

Same result, basically. This time I got to a recursion about 180 proc's deep when something failed ( happily ) and unwound the stack.
Next experiment is to cd into the source tree to do the build: the example does show "./configure". THIS IS STILL A BUG! Building from inside is, in fact, discouraged, IIRC, in the Autotools references.
