So I finally remember to use this damned thing. Here are the packages that compile cleanly in MinGW/MSYS:
- glitz (although it doesn't seem to compile any backends into it or get configured into cairo)
- gettext (I think)
Here are the packages that I can't, for the life of me, compile the way I want them to or work weirdly afterwards:
- libpng (I needed to use the makefile.mingw from the mingwPORT, I think)
- jpeg (it just doesn't want to create a DLL, and there isn't a way to change that because I can't find a configure.ac so that I can change the libtool version)
- freetype2 (had to find a webpage with instructions to make the DLL)
- expat (copied the command from the freetype2 make
- fontconfig (hates the freetype/expat dlls that I made)
- gtk2 (every time it tries to compile a file, it errors out with "gcc.exe: Invalid argument")
- libsvg (wants libgen.h, which MinGW doesn't have at the moment)
Compiling openssl was "fun". I made my own shell script to compile it because apparently they don't like it when you try to compile openssl in an MSYS environment, and I added a command that was referenced in a mailing list problem.
Notes on building poppler (0.3.3) with MinGW (stream of consciousness):
- configure line: ./configure --disable-poppler-qt
- fix up goo/GooTimer.cc with a
#include <io.h>, or else it won't find
- Never mind, forget trying to compile Splash. For some reason, it doesn't like one of the gcc headers:
/include/objidl.h:58: error: expected unqualified-id before string constant /include/objidl.h:58: error: expected `,' or `;' before string constant
- It seems that the previous error happens again in poppler/[something]. I have really no idea why it happens. Giving up on compiling.
I can't type anymore. Brain fried. As an aside, must find/make Atom Publishing Protocol client...
