Hello all,

I am attempting to build Minimo from source (for the WINCE emulator at this point) on Win32. I have followed the build instructions ( as faithfully as possible. The only difference is that I have a previous install of eVC4 at a different path, though I modified setenv_emu_ppc.bat to reflect that.

It is failing on step "I" of the "Steps to Follow Short Form"
call make -f build_all

My presumptive guess at this point is that it is a pathing problem. The log file suggests the failure occurs on the line #include "confdefs.h". As that is an empty file, I can only conclude that it is not being found.

In the console output of the "call make -f build_all", there is an echo of "cd /cygdrive/c/builds/wince/mozilla/../emu_ppc"; apparantly an attempt to run from the directory where confdefs.h resides. If one enters that exact command into the Win32 cmd shell, however, it does not work. /cygdrive/c/builds/... doesn't exist - only c:/builds/...

I am not exactly familiar with the "/cygdrive/c/" semantic. Is that causing my problem? And if so, how do I resolve it?

Thanks for your help.

After experimenting with cygwin, I discovered that within the cygwin shell, /cygwin/c/ maps to the NTFS C:\. Forgive me if that was common knowledge...

Still get the error on make, though, and could use some advice.
