#http://live.gnome.org/Planner/Windows

#http://www.go-evolution.org/Building_Evolution_on_Windows
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.

#http://www.mingw.org/wiki/msys
      See the Autoconf documentation.
+
and automake says
+
      cannot open < gnome-doc-utils.make: No such file or directory
+
 
+
configure then gets confused on
+
    line 2622: syntax error near unexpected token 'GNOME'
+
    'PKG_CHECK_MODULES(GNOME, ' etc
+
so for some reason it isn't actually calling pkg-config

MinGW

MinGW is minimalist GNU for Windows.[1]

One lives in hope....

Needs

  1. building of relevant libaries
  2. building of GS itself


Setting up MinGW

A tutorial for how to set up a MinGW build environment.

  • Install mingw base system only
     http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2435&package_id=240780
  • Install msys
     http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2435&package_id=24963
  • Install msysDTK directly over msys (direct link to file)
     http://downloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/msysDTK-1.0.1.exe?modtime=1041430674&big_mirror=1
  • Install m4-1.4.7-MSYS into your msys /bin
     http://downloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/m4-1.4.7-MSYS.tar.bz2?modtime=1162303978&big_mirror=1
  • Install strawberry perl in default location
     http://strawberryperl.com/
  • Set the environment variable INTLTOOL_PERL=/path/to/strawberry/bin/perl
     export INTLTOOL_PERL=/c/strawberry/perl/bin/perl
     this is done in c:\msys\1.0\etc\profile

notice

     for all following instructions, when you run configure do it with --prefix=/mingw
  • install gnome versions of utilities
     http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/
     create a directory c:\msys\1.0\dev
     add it to your path (in profile)
     unpack everything there
     you need at this point, pkg-config, gettext, gettext-deve, gettext-runtime, gettext-runtime-dev
  • add this line to your profile
     export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/dev/lib/pkgconfig
  • upgrade autoconf to 2.63 from source
     http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/autoconf/
  • upgrade automake to 1.9 from source
     http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/automake/
  • install libcurl
     http://curl.haxx.se/download.html
     (direct linke) http://www.gknw.net/mirror/curl/win32/curl-7.19.0-devel-mingw32.zip
     find curl-config script from linux and copy it to /mingw/bin
  • compile sword-1.5.11 from source (
     with libcurl is easier than ftplib
     you will have to manually alter makefile to link against regex
  • download gnomesword 2.4.1
  • download lots of gnome libs and unpack them in dev
     for everything, you need the normal and developer package
     atk, cairo, fontconfig, freetype, gail, gconf, glib, gnome-common, gnome-doc-utils, gnome-vfs, goocanvas, gtk+, gtkhtml-3.18, intltool, libart, libbonobo, libbonoboui, libbzip, libffi, libglade, libgnome, libgnomecanvas, libgnome, libgnomeprint, libgnomeprintui, libgnomeui, libiconv, libIDL, libpng, libxml2, ORBIT, popt, pthreads, zlib
  • alter configure script to allow compilation without scrollkeeper
  • apply linux/windows diff
     hopefully most will be unnecessary soon
     mailed to gnomesword-developers
  • run configure with --enable-gtkhtml --disable-scrollkeeper --prefix=/mingw
  • make
     you will have to alter the makefile in libs to link against libcurl.dll (-lcurl doesn't work)
  • make install
  • run gnomesword
  • getting gnomesword free from mingw is another topic.
