      I just made a two page step by step instruction and lost it before I could save it. I won't write it again

      it basically said install the dependancies EXACTLY as described in the wiki

      Make sure the environment variables are set (see the notes at the end)

      When you get the cmakecache.txt it will need to be manually edited to show the path to boost and SDL_MIXER path

      If you get the error can't find qmake. erase everything and start again.

      First be absolutely sure you have all the dependencies installed in the correct order.
      Then check the file "CMakeCache.txt" and be sure the references to iconv are correct. This is the most likely problem.
      If this doesn't work, check your environmental variables.

    This is a common error.
    Delete your cmakecache.txt
    Check that libiconv-1.9.2.exe, gettext-0.14.4.exe and zlib1.2.3.exe have been
    installed correctly in \Qt\4.7.1\mingw
    check that the paths to mingw\lib, include and bin are in your environment
    start cmake -G "MSYS Makefiles" ../.. again
    If the problem persists locate the missing files and manually edit the
    cmakechache.txt with the correct path

    It encountered the same errors even after editing the CMakeCache. I am not too
    sure if I am editing correctly. What exactly are the changes to be made?

    Please reply ASAP. Running on deadline.
