How are Winelib programs meant to be installed, then?  Am I missing
something obvious?

for i in ; do (cd $i; make install) || exit 1; done
/bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `;'
/bin/sh: -c: line 1: `for i in ; do (cd $i; make install) || exit 1; done'
make: *** [install] Error 2

This should not be hard to fix, I think:

	for i in $(SUBDIRS); do (cd $$i; $(MAKE) install) || exit 1; done
	for i in $(EXES); do $(INSTALL_PROGRAM) $$i $(bindir); done
	for i in $( $(DLLS); do $(INSTALL_PROGRAM) $$i $(libdir); done

Just leave out the first line if there are no SUBDIRS, no? And the same
for uninstall.  Now, however, make has made a symbolic link to
/usr/local/bin/wine for each of EXES, which seems right, so they can be
run from where they were built, so the next line makes a copy of the
wine executable in the name of each executable, and we install the .so
file in libdir.  AFAICT, wine will be looking for it in bindir.  I
thought perhaps I had misled winemaker into thinking it was making a
dll, but I did tell it quite clearly --console:

winemaker --nosource-fix --console --nogenerated-specs --single-target toj2 wlp

True.  As long as ./configure works, it is not to onerous to fix a few
lines of  Indeed, that is how I installed the version of
toj2 I am sending this with.  I think, though, the subdirs line could be
conditional, and maybe libdir for bindir is a mistake.  I don't want to
make things more difficult for those who are doing truly hairy and
difficult tasks with winemaker just to make everything perfectly smooth
for my little app.  I can't think of a case where you would want to
install EXES into bindir, either, instead of somethng like:

	for i in $(EXES); do  cd $(bindir) && $(RM) -f $$i && $(LN_S) wine $$i; done
	for i in $( $(DLLS); do $(INSTALL_PROGRAM) $$i $(bindir); done

Winemaker is a terrific help, and thank you for it.
