[Gcl-devel] GCL 2.6.10pre builds on Win7

Camm's work has been fantastic as usual. The following shows how to
build GCL2.6.10pre on Win7.  I have not verified same on WinVista or
Win95.  If you'd like native Win95 installers of 2.6.8 and 2.6.9 you
can get them from here --> ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/gcl (These won't
work on WinVista or Win7)

Note that 2.6.9 will still not build on Win7 -- we must use 2.6.10pre
for Win7. The changes from 2.6.9 to 2.6.10pre are to address
differences in the way Win7 deals with memory, so you're getting all
the 2.6.9 good stuff with 2.6.10pre.

Here is a quick job aid for git-ting and building GCL 2.6.n. If anyone
is interested I'll create native installers for 2.6.10pre on Win7.

>From a GIT client (I'm using http://msysgit.github.io/):

$ git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/gcl.git

>From MinGW (omit comments from ; to EOL):

$ cd gcl
$ rm gcl/debian/control*  ; removes files your Win32 system doesn't
                                    ; need, but determines have to be committed
                                    ; to master before proceding
$ git checkout master     ; git checkout Version_2_6_9,
                                    ; git checkout Version 2_6_10pre, etc.
$ cd gcl
$ ./configure && make    ; *** see options, below -- these will be very familiar

$ ./configure --enable-ansi    ; (as before, no switch builds CLtL1)

For my own purposes I make a log file to go along with configure,
make, install, like this:

$ ./configure &>c:/Users/your-login-here/Desktop/config.log ; can add
ansi switch
$ make &>c:/Users/your-login-here/Desktop/make.log
$ make install &>c:/Users/your-login-here/Desktop/install.log

If you have questions or any drama with this, please let us know.
