Fix related to AWK is being investigated. Looks like it's BINMODE not BINARY. These are makefile changes and will take some time to test.
The README-builds.html file will be changed to include:
- introduce ALT_JDK_IMPORT_PATH
- mention that cygwin make has to be downgraded to 3.80 (added more, already had some)
- mention that following Cygwin packages are required: zip, unzip, free, awk, etc.
The defaults in the makefiles attempt to find what they can, but some things are difficult to know what to use.
See the file
which could be included in a shell to set some basics.
