Building GLib
=============
......@@ -74,72 +82,29 @@ Again, first decide whether you really want to do this.
Before building GLib you must also have the libiconv library and GNU
gettext. Get prebuilt binaries of libiconv (1.9.1 or newer), and
gettext-runtime (0.12.1 or newer) from your nearest GNU ftp mirror. If
you use gcc, you will also have to edit the libintl.h file from
gettext a tiny bit: Change the
# if __GNUC__ >= 2 && !defined __APPLE_CC__ && (defined __STDC__ || defined __cplusplus)
line to
# if __GNUC__ >= 2 && !defined __APPLE_CC__ && !defined __MINGW32__ && (defined __STDC__ || defined __cplusplus)
around line 102.
Where are the makefiles?
========================
gettext-runtime (0.13.1 or newer) from www.gimp.org/win32/downloads.html.
If you are building from a CVS snapshot, you will not have any
makefile.mingw or makefile.msc files. You should copy the
corresponding makefile.mingw.in or makefile.msc.in file to that name,
and replace any @...@ strings with the correct value.
This is done automatically when an official GLib source distribution
package is built, so if you get GLib from a source distribution
package, there should be makefile.mingw and makefile.msc files ready
to use (after some editing).
Building GLib with gcc
======================
Autoconfiscated build (with gcc)
================================
Tor uses gcc 3.2. Version 2.95.3 also works.
You can either use gcc running on Cygwin, or the "pure" mingw
gcc. Using the latter might work better, or at least did at some
point.
Fetch the latest version of gcc for mingw and the msvcrt runtime, from
www.mingw.org.
point. You should be running Cygwin, or maybe cross-compiling from
real Unix, for the configure script to work, obviously. It is also
possible to use MSYS.
Set up your PATH so that the gcc from the bin directory that got
created above is the one that gets used. Even if you run the mingw
gcc, you still want to have Cygwin to run make in.
Then run make -f makefile.mingw. Install the resulting DLLs somewhere
in your PATH. You can either keep the headers and import libraries
where they are, or install them somewhere else. There are no rules in
the makefile.mingws for installing, it is up to you where to put them.
Autoconfiscated build
=====================
It is also possible to use the auto*, ./configure and libtool
mechanism when building with gcc. You should be running Cygwin, or
maybe cross-compiling from real Unix, for the configure script to
work, obviously. It is also possible to use MSYS.
When building from an official source distribution, to be able to
build DLLs without problems, it might well be necessary to have a
relatively new version of libtool installed. If so, replace the
libtool parts included with GLib sources with newer versions by
running libtoolize --force. After that you want to run aclocal-1.4 and
autoconf before running configure.
If you want to use mingw's gcc, install gcc, Win32 headers and
binutils from www.mingw.org. Set up your PATH so that the mingw gcc is
the one that gets used, and not Cygwin's gcc. Even if you run the
mingw gcc, you still want to have Cygwin to run make in.

Except for this and a few other minor issues, there really shouldn't
be any reason to distribute separate GLib headers and DLLs for gcc and
MSVC users, as the compilers generate code that uses the same C
runtime library, and is mutually binary compatible. Thus one either
has to manually edit glibconfig.h afterwards, or use the supplied
glibconfig.h.win32. This has been produced by running configure twice,
once using gcc and once using MSVC, and merging the resulting files
with diff -D.
The hand-written makefile.{mingw,msc} files, and the stuff in the
"build" subdirectory, produce DLLs and import libraries that match
what Makefile.am and libtool produces. For GLib, the DLL is called

Building with MSVC
==================
If you are building from a CVS snapshot, you will not have any

value.
This is done automatically when an official GLib source distribution

so-called autoconfiscated build produces.
All the MSVC makefiles are for the command line build with nmake. If
you want to use the VC-UI you can simply create wrapper .dsp makefiles
(read the VC docs how to do so).
