Now i know why developers pull out their hair.
Because I wanted to see for myself what wonderful new things are in the newest Gimp 2.7.2, I have decided to try and compile using cygwin. (i tried unsuccessfully with msys and minGW setup).
Surprisingly I have come very close to achieving just this. I have however ran into a roadblock, one of many already hurdled.The compile for Gimp 2.7.2 is successful up to the point of finding BABL. I have compiled BABL. My problem now is that GEGL when i go to run configure, can not find BABL, even though its installed.
Does anyone have a clue as to where to place the BABL binaries so GEGL can see them and compile itself?
I know others have compiled 2.7 for Windows, so someone has to have an answer for this.
I know they have to be in the path of the compiler itself, but does there have to be a path variable set in the system itself? Such as ..... BABL_BASEPATH prefix of path here and a, GEGL_BASEPATH ..... prefix of path here
thanks and best regards,
