Just wanted to share an update on the problem I reported earlier. The problem was due to Cygwin
crashing when loading libraries dynamically. To workaround it I tried switching to MSys (MinGW)
but that does not work either.
I find that extconf.rb does not work as expected. Neither in MSys nor in a native WinXP console.
The source of the problem is the following line(s) in extconf.rb
Ruby MinGW (irrespective of the shell in which it is run) does not execute the above statement
successfully since fltk_config is not recognized as an executable. I tried the following values
for the variable fltk_config
This failure cascades into other errors during "make".
If the executable "fltk-config" is replaced with say a batch file or any other executable
recognized by Windows(.exe,.bat) the statement succeeds for WinXP.
I am not sure what is the best way out. I wonder if it would be good to use standard tools for
configure instead of Ruby.
