#26 closed defect (fixed)

Configuration incorrect in Data directory with VPATH build and -mno-cygwin

Reported by: tkr Owned by: somebody
Priority: major Component: component1
Version: Keywords:


When you configure the Data project in CYGWIN with the -mno-cygwin option and a VPATH build, soft links are created from the files in build_dir/Data/*/* to the files in src_dir/Data/*/*, but these softlinks cannot be understood by an executable that is compiled with the -mno-cygwin flag, since soft links don't exist in Windows. Furthermore, it seems that even if the configuration was ostensibly done with --enable-gnu-packages, the executables do not infact get linked with bzlib and other GNU libraries, since these also do not exist in Windows.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

This has been fixed now in BuildTools? stable/0.5, in connection with closing ticket #16. Now, if under Cygwin configure is run with --enable-doscompile or with the MSVC compiler, the data files are copied, instead of creating symbolic links.

The Data configuration files have been regenerated in their stable/1.0.

As for the --enable-gnu-packages flag, it only enables the TESTS for the GNU packages, but if a package is not found, it is not used, and no error is spit out.
