Hi,
FYI!
I just installed successfully plplot-5.9.7 on mingw :-)
However I had to do a minor change to make 'make' happy.
More specifically I had to: cp dll/libplplotadad.dll dll/libplplotadad.dll.a
Details: I ran the following commands:
1. mkdir buildmingw
2. cmake -G "MSYS Makefiles" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=install -DCMAKE_VERBOSE_MAKEFILE=ON -DBUILD_TEST=ON ..
3. make
It is at step 3 when ada examples are compiled that I get the problem of missing dll/libplplotadad.dll.a file.

    I confirm the issue of the missing dll/libplplotadad.dll.a. That is undoubtedly caused by a Windows limitation in our CMake Ada language support. To solve that at a fundamental level is going to be difficult, but for now I have adopted (revision 11369) your workaround in our build system. That workaround works for me on my MinGW/MSYS/wine platform. Thanks for that! I will leave this bug report open as a reminder that we need a more fundamental fix.
