You should be able to compile everything except python using mingw.
Python requires some extreme hackery to get going. There are those who
have managed to compile python using mingw but it required a VERY large
amount of patching to get around the fact that Windows is not Posix
compliant. Most folks agree that Python for Windows must be compiled
with MSVC... and then you have the fun of trying to get *that* to
interact nicely with mingw.
Ok, so is building python absolutely necessary to build lilypond? Surely
No, it's for midi2ly.
there are binaries available?
I guess what frustrates me most about GNU-style developing is that so much
effort is put into neat configure scripts that are designed to run without
any intervention and have it do all the work for you, but to get there
For me, getting python headers is a matter of doing
yum install python-devel
That's hardly trawling for hours. For debian, you can even install all
build-dependencies in a single command.
You're free to make a fork of LilyPond with a Wiz-style of developing
where everything comes in a 100mb zipfile that Just Works. But that's
not my style, so don't expect me to spend time help you with that.
