[Axiom-developer] making ccl on cygwin

I have been trying hard to get CCL to compile
and link under Cygwin. I have resolved most
problems but I've run into a problem with the
"rusty" coding in CCL relating to remote procedure
calls (rpc). There are several variants of the
rpc api, the one being used by CCL is originally
from SUN. Cygwin does not normally include this
so the #include "rpc/rpc.h" is not defined
instead there is a "win32/rpc.h" which has a
somewhat different set of interface routines
and parameters. I was able to locate a version
of the SUN rpc which had been adapted for Cygwin
but it is not being directly maintained by the
Cygwin people. Anyway, after installing it
successfully, I got further with the CCL compile
but then ran into some C code that does not
conform to the standards expected by gcc version
3.2 (at least not with the options that the
Makefile contains).

What version of C compiler are you using? Is
it gcc 3.2 on Red Hat 8.0 linux or some other?

Anyway, I was wondering what you might think
about a some surgery to get rid of what appears
to be some "code rot" in this part of CCL? Is
rpc really needed for Axiom? I can imagine that
it might be relevant to someone interested in
parallel processing versions etc. but I expect
that anyone serious about doing this sort of
development would prefer a more modern inter-
process communication protocol than rpc? No?

What do you think?
