#164 configure: error: could not make

MSYS (18)

Hello, I have following MSYS:
$ uname -a
MINGW32_NT-5.1 mypc 1.0.17(0.48/3/2) 2011-04-24 23:39 i686 Msys

I can not run ./configure script for SDCC project in this environment. It ends with message \"configure: error: could not make\" at the place where CONFIG_HEADERS are to be printed out.

I was told that on other systems ( Linux, Cygwin), this script works properly.

Attached are both configure and config.log scripts packed in the ZIP file.

    It appears to fail due to the lack of POSIX support on Windows. You'll need to convert the package to Windows semantics.

    It works on Cygwin because it is the scope of Cygwin to provide POSIX support on Windows.
