I just can't get this working.
I've finally been able to get chicken installed and working, but I had to pretend to be cygwin.
I think there's errors in the mingw-msys Makefile, or my assumptions about it are wrong.
I would expect:
- "Makefile.mingw" to produce files for MingW64 in a windows cmd shell
- "Makefile.mingw-msys" to produce files for MingW64 in msys2 shells (bash etc with unix paths)
- "Makefile.cygwin" to require some kind of cygwin setup, which I don't have
This time, I compiled under an MSYS shell (not MingW64)
$ make PLATFORM=cygwin install
I still needed at least a chicken.exe from the previous installs I did, but it compiled and installed fine.
It also was able to install an egg:
$ chicken-install uri-common
which subsequently works in a csi shell:
#;3> (uri->string (update-uri (uri-reference "") path: '("example" "greeting") query: '((hi . "there"))))
So I finally have an install that honours the unix paths.
In the MSYS shell, my versions are:
$ uname -a
