2007/5/30, Urias McCullough <umccullough@xxxxxxxxx>: I've applied some of your diffs, but not everything. For example I didn't have to touch the buildtools. They compiled without any issue.
Yep, i noticed this after the last round of FreeBSD updates to the buildtools (several months ago I believe) - IIRC, all the patches I had there were to tweak the tests for "fixinc".
I can share my current diffs as they differ a bit from what you did. What I have learnt is that every time you install cygwin you get a slightly different experience, due to the different versions of the various packages.
Yep... but I do have a list of the bare minimum additional packages you need beyond the default core install of cygwin (at least to get to the point of failure): subversion (plus deps) (needed for source retrieval) gcc-core (plus deps) (obviously needed) make (needed for cross-tools compile) gettext (needed for libintl support - for cross-tools compile - bfd) libiconv (needed for cross-tools compile - bfd) flex (suitable replacement for lex - needed for cross-tools compile - ld) byacc (suitable replacement for yacc - needed for jam compile) (must be done before make attempted - otherwise delete targets and start over) gcc-g++ (plus deps) (needed for haiku host build tools compile) That's my previous list... hopefully it hasn't changed much with the recent changes. I hadn't added bison yet - but maybe that's simply because I hadn't gotten far enough into the build to require it yet. In any case, I have a fresh environment set up, managed mount created, and I'm downloading the source now - should be done by morning (my internet connection is that bad, yes...)
