I've just successfully compiled AbiWord-1.1.4 (.tar.gz, expat,
fribidi, libicon, libpng, nsis, popt, wv and zlib libraries
are from CVS as for 5-6 April 2003) in MinGW
2.0.0-3/MSYS-1.0.8/Win98SE enviroment. I see no linker errors but I have
to do some fixes. I don't think all of them are vital or even correct
from global point of view but them seems to work.
Move comment on a line 36 to the next line. This will make
ABI_OPT_PACIFY_COMPILER to be equal to "1", not "1 #some stuff here"
and ifneq at line 114 will correctly remove "-ansi" from the compiler
MinGW Win32 API is not complete. In particular, it lacks
DM_SPECVERSION macro. One may try to download newer headers from
www.mingw.org or just put the definition into wingdi.h. I've used
"#define DM_SPECVERSION 0x0400", the complete code can be found in
wingdi.h of Borland C Compiler 5.5 (freely available from
www.inprise.com), MSVC 6 or any other Win32 C/C++ compiler
There is a typo in xap_Win32Res_DlgLanguage.rc2. One should remove
comma at the end of the line 46. Then one should insert '#include
<windows.h>' line in every file, which has STYLE statement (Almost
all rc2 files have it)
607: EXTRA_LIBS += -L$(ABI_ROOT)/../expat/.libs -lexpat
Original version has incorrect path to expat lib.
AbiWord.exe produced by MinGW seems to be stable (at least, it does'nt
hangs or crashes after opening, typing some letters, saving them and
exiting). The only bad thing is that it is compiled as console
application so there is nasty DOS window when it is running. Maybe
this is some way to handle this issue via
abi/src/config/platforms/mingw32.mk's *_FLAGS variables?
