We work on a project that have to run and be distributed under

my subject. has port of the setup code been made on unices ? I try to
use the source on my linux box but, if the configure do it ok, the
compilation halt on the getopt.c file. So have something been done ?

Another question, is there a non interactive mode of setup (one you can
use on the command line) ?

thanks for your work

setup is tailored for cygwin packages. Why not just write a shell script?

the easy selection of packages,
the standardisation of the distribution formats,
the gui,
the existence of a configuration file to define exctly what version of what package to use

As the development is a collaborative one it is easier to use a well defined product than write another one (if adaptation of the setup tool is not too hard).
