It’s a Good Day to Build

Lots of good progress this evening.

I updated qt3 to 3.2.3 in my exp tree, it’s looking pretty good. Didn’t have to do much, just a few modifications. I fixed the $(QTDIR) thing in libqt-mt.la that causes errors like this:

  ../../libtool: line 1: QTDIR: command not found
  ../../libtool: line 1: QTDIR: command not found
  ld: warning -L: directory name (/lib) does not exist
  ld: warning -L: directory name (/lib) does not exist

I also made it so that binaries in qt (moc, qmake, etc.) were built with -mdynamic-no-pic, which should speed them up a little. Doesn’t help libqt, but what they hey, every little bit helps.

Also, thanks to Torrey, I got a working XFree86 snapshot for Panther. If you’re brave, and willing to test it out, grab the xfree86.info and xfree86.patch file from here, and put them in your /sw/fink/dists/local/main/finkinfo directory (create it if it doesn’t exist). You should be able to do a “fink install xfree86” then, and get 4.3.99.15.

Be warned, if you build anything against this, there’s no going back to Apple’s X11, a number of libraries have changed. I’d appreciate some testers though, if you’re willing to give it a shot.
