Qt 4.7.3 build on Cygwin
The latest source code doesn't even compile on Cygwin. I get the following error:
/usr/src/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.3/src/corelib/global/qglobal.cpp: In static member function
static QSysInfo::WinVersion QSysInfo::windowsVersion()': /usr/src/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.3/src/corelib/global/qglobal.cpp:1731: error: cannot convertOSVERSIONINFOW*' to
_OSVERSIONINFOA*' for argument1' to `BOOL GetVersionExA(_OSVERSIONINFOA*)'
make: *** [qglobal.o] Error 1
By changing the code from
makes it work.
I figured that one out. Actually look at all of the fixes I had to do:
Now I'm trying to disable script build with "./configure -no-script ..." because Collector.cpp can't compile but I have to reconfigure everything. Running configure deletes all the objects files!!! This means rebuilding everything will take another 96 minutes!!!
Nobody ever tried building Qt on Cygwin?? This is mediocre.
Features that would be great to add to the configure script are:
- The ability not to build the examples (like before)
- The ability to configure without deleting all object files
- The ability to build both static and dynamic versions at the same time
The latter I meant:
- The ability to build both static and dynamic versions of the final Qt library at the same time.

Has the -nomake <package> (examples, demos, tests, etc.) parameter been removed recently?
So this is the option I was looking for. But I can't run configure again because it'll delete a whole day of compilation.
Just remove all the unwanted targets from the Makefile.
Thanks but it's too late; the build is complete after a day.
JFYI: You can interrupt the build process at any time you want, make will skip all the targets which have been built already and pick up the work where it stopped.
BTW I would suggest renaming the option:
Because this is the convention followed by other configure scripts.
