#126 Building mrxvt broken on Cygwin


Since trunk-rev.-274 this happens (until 265 all worked fine):

After downloading from SVN

$ cd mrxvt05b
$ ./bootstrap.sh
+ aclocal
+ autoheader
+ automake --add-missing --copy
configure.ac:38: installing `./config.guess'
configure.ac:38: installing `./config.sub'
configure.ac:29: installing `./install-sh'
configure.ac:29: installing `./missing'
Makefile.am: required file `./ChangeLog' not found
+ autoconf

and ./configure fails.

If I copy ChangeLog.old to ChangeLog OR if I

$ svn2cl --authors=svn-authors.xml -r 245:HEAD

then ./configure passes but

$ make

    could you tell us if it is still happening with last version? Apparently your issue is that it tries to include a header it should not have the right to: wordexp.h: No such file or directory
    The code shows:
    40 #ifdef HAVE_WORDEXP_H
    41 # include <wordexp.h>
    42 #endif

    If you don't have this wordexp.h file, it should simply ignore all the related part, but here it tries to include it! So is the HAVE_WORDEXP_H not good test? Is it because cygwin make problems in preprocessing variables?
    Anyway I guess your configure failed for some reason. What was the last messages when it failed originally?
