Building on Cygwin


Recommended Posts

I would really prefer to build MaNGOS on Cygwin rather than downloading the massive (and only "free trial") Visual Studio Express. When attempting to do so, I am running into errors that I do not know how to fix.

For example, at the beginning of the build of TBB make begins to attempt to call "cl" the Microsoft C compiler, even though $(CC) in the makefiles should be referencing gcc, not cl. It calls gcc when I type it into bash, for example.

When running cmake, I get a notification explicitly stating that the makefile is being made as if I were running a Unix-like operating system, so I am uncertain why it is trying to use anything other than the installed gcc.

While I can probably learn a bit of C by going through the files as errors occur, doing research to find out what I need to do to fix them, and repeating. However, all I'd really be doing is porting the application and that isn't something I want to do unless there's no other way (might be fun, but only if it's required.)

Could anyone assist me in either case?
