tcl8.5 build with msys


Hi,

I tried building Tcl/Tk in msys (windows) and outside the source tree
(something like):

  cd mydir; c:/home/rene/tcl8.5/win/configure
  make

It does not work because of ":" was used as separator in the "VPATH"
variable
list. After changing to ";" everything work fine. Have I missed
something?
Is there a better/other way to do. Btw. the same issue is in the TEA
building
system.

Invoke configure like this:

   /c/home/rene/tcl8.5/win/configure

Msys is a funny blend of windows and unix; sometimes things are a little
odd, but there's usually a way. More troublesome is if you've got
directories with spaces in in the path or the working directory. That
can cause real annoyance (least it has done for me in the past) as many
Unix-derived scripts aren't robust against that sort of thing; Unix
culture has frowned upon non-graph characters in filenames for, well,
longer than I've used computers.

Of course, if they'd used Tcl instead, they would not have had problems
but that's a whole 'nother story. :-)

Thanks for the help. Now it works (see also "Announce kbs system"
here).

But it is still troublesome to use different ways "C:" in tcl and "/c"
otherwise.
And the make documentation is also for ";" in windows.
