Description

Master mc.org "configure" fails on cygwin. Both cygwin 1.5 and 1.7 were checked. Probably, it's an autoconf issue(?). 4.6.1 builds OK.

This is with glib2.0-devel package installed.

./configure: line 14070: syntax error near unexpected token `GLIB,'
./configure: line 14070: ` PKG_CHECK_MODULES(GLIB, glib-2.0, glib_found=yes, :)'

can anyone suggest something?

I was able to "autogen.sh" and "configure" master mc on Cygwin-1.7. To do this I had to install pkg-config program. It's not mentioned in INSTALL or other docs in mc source tree - probably this should be documented somewhere.

Another problem is the S-lang which is absent in official Cygwin packages list. I've installed S-lang 2.1.4 from tarball and "configure" picked it but make fails with the following messages:

(sorry for too short exerpt - I've tried building on scroll-less console emulator and it's too late this night to give it another try)
