Hello,To better compartmentalize the build:
frysk-core, frysg-gui, etc, are treated as autonomous sub-packages,
each having its own configure.ac. Why is that?
- frysk-gtk, and frysk-gui only have GTK dependencyes, hence frysk's
core (frysk-core) can be built without gtk dependencies
- frysk-core and frysk-gui have no native code (that's separated into
sys, imports, and gtk) (ok in theory, I see there's been some bitrot :-)).
I can imagine several reasons:
1) There is (or will be) a need to build the individual parts
2) The configure.ac might be too different.
3) historic reasons
I will be grateful for any info.
