Summary:  installing make under mingw/msys

Original Submission:  I never noticed this under other platforms, but i noticed 
while installing make under mingw/msys

Creating makefile directories in: /usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles

ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/GNUstep/System/Makefiles' to 
`Library/Makefiles': No such file or directory

make: [install] Error 1 (ignored)

though i'm a little curious wether it should work as is

I just ran into this as well. It still doesn't work with the current source, 
since mingw32 defines LN_S to ln -s (even though it's not really).  You need 
the config.make.in patch shown here for it to work.

sort of, it creates the symlinks now because LN_S == ln -s in config.make, 
though the implementation of ln -s seems to be pure evil, the symlinks aren't 
symlinks, but copies. this, causes make crash on a second install like:

$ make install

Moving paths from old heirarchy: 

  c:/GNUstep/System/Makefiles: Cannot move. Already exists in new location

Creating system domain: c:/GNUstep/System

Creating local and network dirs: c:/GNUstep/Local, c:/GNUstep/Network

Creating makefile directories in: c:/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles

rm: `c:/GNUstep/System/Makefiles' is a directory

make: [install] Error 1 (ignored)

ln: `Makefiles': cannot overwrite directory

make: *** [install] Error 1

here's a patch that sets HAS_LN_S to no in config.make.in if the target_os is

Hi Matt, thanks.

Could you check the latest CVS (with my latest changes) and let me know if that 
works better.
