Re: problems running mmv on cygwin
Well, the problem is that no dll's are produced at all -- after all
this is just C code. Here is the Makefile if that is any help.
# Possible defines in CONF:
# IS_MSDOS IS_SYSV IS_V7 IS_BSD HAS_DIRENT HAS_RENAME MV_DIR
CONF =-DIS_SYSV -DHAS_DIRENT -DHAS_RENAME
CFLAGS =-O2 $(CONF)
LDFLAGS =-s -N
rm -f mmv mmv.o
$(DEST)$(IBIN)/mmv: mmv; cp $? $@
$(DEST)$(IMAN)/man1/mmv.1: mmv.1; cp $? $@
