Re: Cygwin and Windows Paths Leaking Through
You are right. I had to create a separate folder, which in my case I used
your advice and did /usr/local/build-binutils.
I also found out that the reason for my earlier problems with the make file
complaining about carriage returns was because I used WinZip to expand the
binutils-2.21.tar.bz file and not tar.
Creating a separate folder and doing make failed with the process saying
that some folder was already configured. Obviously, working in the same
folder corrupted things, so I decided to start off clean. I deleted my
source folder and used tar to create and expand things into the
/usr/local/binutils-2.21 folder. I got a complaint during the tar process
about unable to set 501 permission on files, but I ignored those.
I then went to the newly created build-binutils folder and did the tree
steps (configure line, make, make install) and everything completed with no
errors or warnings.
My problem was as you said. I built from the source folder rather than a
I learnt something new.
Thank you Chuck!
