RE: [avr-gcc-list] Building AVARICE on Cygwin

I finally gave up on this one.

I really would like build AVARICE on cygwin, so I could use the version that
is in cvs.  The released version with WinAVR is buggy.

Is there anyone out there with enough smarts to solve this.  I don't know
anything about configure, and I don't know what to tell it to solve this

I have tried, and tried again.  The LIB is there, but I can not make it find
it.   Sometimes the simplest things just stump me.

I though perhaps I could remove the offending libs from configure.ac, (had
to also remove xmalloc) and modify the code not to support bfd lib, but then
configure craps out

checking for strtol... yes
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating
.infig.status: error: cannot find input file:

Thanks for any help anyone can offer.


My Problem again for all that missed it.
