To be honest, it has been a few months since my last attempt, which I
abandonned without much luck. It isn't clear to me what pieces of the puzzle
I'm missing with Autoconf/configure, but I don't seem to be able to produce
much besides error messages.
My approach has always been to use my own makefile, fashioned after the (now
hopelessly out-of-date) makefile.win32 in the panotools distribution. I think
that I might still be able to build the library (pano1*.dll) using this
approach, but I haven't been able to build the tools (PTMender and friends)
using this approach since the code got reshuffled with the move to SVN and
However, I have manged to write my own makefile to build the tools linked
statically to the panotools code (bypassing the need for any pano**.dll
library, and the possibility of mismatched tools/library versions) which suits
my needs much better.
As an aside, the version of panotools that I'm still distributing on my site is
from immediately before the codebase reshuffle, and is binary compatibility
with the pano tools suite (i.e. PTStitcher and friends), does work with
PTMender, and does include the speed improvements that came with the addition
