As shipped, tix has never included access to the tclx
extentions. This patch adds this support, resulting
in an executable called `tixwishx'.
Two areas required changes: config/acinclude.m4 needed
to be taught how to find the bits of tclx it needed,
and unix/tkX8.3 needed to be created as the place to
actually do the make.
unix/tkX8.3 was created by first copying tk8.3 and
then extending files therein appropriately.
This patch has only been tested on Linux, and then
only with --disable-shared specified.
Also included in the changes to config/acinclude.m4
is a minor fix regarding the C compiler tests. As
shipped, AC_PROG_CC was only called if --enable-gcc
was specified to configure. This meant that in the
absence of --enable-gcc, the core compiler tests
were never done and some fundamental variables (OBJEXT
for example) were not set. This meant that, for
example, the `unsigned char' test would fail when it
The patch is against tix 8.1.3.
I would be interested to hear what people think of
this patch and whether it might be integrated into
the tix distribution.
