(I'm cleaning up my queue of patches to ROX-Filer, as you can tell :-)
I have submitted a new version of an old patch to sourceforge, this one to add
a --with-vfs option to both configure and AppRun, to make it easier to compile
VFS support when libvfs is not located in a "standard" directory.
- It adds a --with-vfs[=vfsprefix] option to configure, and it looks
in vfsprefix/include and vfsprefix/lib for the corresponding headers
- When AppRun is called with --compile, it now passes any additional
options directly to configure, so you can run:
./AppRun --compile --with-vfs=/my/vfs/prefix
when compiling it, and it will pass the option to configure.
- This patch overrides #102842 (in the sourceforge patches page). I
didn't submit it as an update because the description of that patch
is not appropriate for this one (it removes the use of the
VFS_PREFIX variable in favor of allowing the --with-vfs flag to be
passed to AppRun).
- This patch is against CVS as of January 23, 2001.
- I really hope this would make it into CVS. I know Thomas is looking for
an alternative to VFS, but in the meantime, this would make life so
much easier... :-)
- I am by no means knowledgeable in autoconf-esque, so I'm certain my
changes to configure.in can be done in a much more elegant way.

Well, I'll put it in unless we change very soon. Does anyone have
experience with KIO and/or gnome-vfs?
gnome-vfs will probably be easier to interface to. I don't know how much
GNOME/KDE baggage the libraries will bring with them :-/
Anyone got a preference?
