I managed to install Cygwin and gcc, so I can compile our very large and irregularly structured C++ project here on the PC before I port it to Solaris when the hardware is ready.
Now someone tell me an easy way to generate a makefile (which does not involve typing in 3000 filenames). Can I use the vssscc files made by Visual SourceSafe? There is an automake, but as far as I can see it wants me to do all the work.
I checked out a lot of sites that tell you how to do it. Every one tells a different story. If I just type automake I get a lot of helpful comments about things to try in configure.ac, but there must be a quicker way than this...
