I am compiling using MinGW 5.1.3 (GCC 3.4.2 and Make 3.79)
on Windows 2000 in an MSYS 1.0.11 shell.
I know that there are some problems with the GRASS
Makefiles and Make < 3.81.
For example, it fails parsing lib/form/Makefile because
it cannot interpret the "¦" correctly.
Make 3.81 can handle the pipe correctly. However, it fails
miserably with plenty of error messages about not being
able to find some path, mostly like this:
process_begin: CreateProcess(NULL, /bin/install -c -m 644
/src/grass6/dist.i686-pc-mingw32/etc/form/html_library.tcl, ...) failed.
make (e=3): System cannot find the path specified.
make: *** [/src/grass6/dist.i686-pc-mingw32/etc/form/html_library.tcl]
There are other, equally idiotic error messages.
The worst thing is that I can't kill it with CTRL+C.
It spans multiple instances and keeps coming back up.
What a nuisance.
So, unless someone can tell me what's wrong with
MinGW 3.81 and GRASS 6.3, I am stuck with Make 3.79.
Anyhow, the untidy error output discussed below persists
also with make 3.81.
