I'm helping Matt Welland with the chicken-iup package. However, amusingly (?), I am rather a novice with MinGW, so this error I'm getting is a complete mystery to me.
The OS is 32-bit Windows XP running in VirtualBox on 64-bit Linux. The build environment I'm trying to use is the old mingw32 with MSYS. I'm aware that that product is rather ancient and crufty, and that mingw-w64 is now recommended for building Chicken - and I have not ruled out using that - but the existing project is designed for MSYS (which is not included in mingw-w64) and I'd like to save myself the trouble of porting it just now.
Anyway, when I invoke
make PLATFORM=mingw-msys PREFIX=c:/chicken
[I've tried various other values for PREFIX, with no apparent effect]
I get the following error:
