Compiling my own GNUPG-binary on a Windows-system
Fri Dec 13 10:19:02 2002
sorry to have to ask this, but how do i compile my own binary of GNUPG (or
other GNU-/OS-software) from the source-code on a MS-Windows-system?
All the different Unices seem to come along with their C-compilers (or is
it C++ and if what is the real difference between both?), but what
"utility" do i use to make a Windows-binary from the source code.
Do i really have to buy a licence of MS-compilers (or another commercial
compiler software) or is there a free / open source solution to this problem?
Is it possible to make / compile a Windows-binary on a "Unix"-system (*BSD,
I'm only just at the beginning of switching to OS-software (not yet totally
sure as to what is best suited for me: *BSD or Linux) but at the moment i'm
still using Windows and would like to do some own compiling / making of
binaries on this platform too. I started using the GNUPP-cd-rom
(http://www.gnupp.de , http://www.sicherheit-im-internet.de) and would
urgently like to see if the binaries supplied on this cd-rom are really
"the real stuff" or if s.o. applied some "improvement" to them... ;-)
Thanks a lot already in advance for any - highly appreciated - help! A
(some) link(s) would be more than enough... And if this info can easily be
found in any newbie-FAQ then pls. be so kind to leave a link too!
And pls. do have a nice day! :-)
