I'm trying to migrate from the old computer (an old RH-7.3 box much like
Frankenstein's monster) to a more manageable machine (running Debian etch).
Cross-building isn't working on the new machine yet and is currently broken
on the old one.

That's true: the two builds are independent. The wine tests had a different
problem, for which I've a work-around now.

Yes. The autoconf-generated script seems to be getting confused when
When cross-compiling, I do something similar to the following:
1. get the source-code and move to directory wine-cross-source
2. In directory wine-cross-elf, do:
../wine-cross-source/configure && make depend && make tools
3. In directory wine-cross-pe, do:
../wine-cross-source/configure --host=i686-mingw32msvc \
After that, it does a "make depend" and a bunch of other stuff to get
winetest.exe, the DLLs and other EXEs.
Step 3 is failing. It looks as if the configure script becomes confused
between cross-building and native environments, in particular with OpenGL
libraries. Although the code is cross-compiling, it seems to pick up the
native GL libraries and header files. Then, when the cross-compiler fails
(to link some glx symbol, iirc), the configure script dies.
When it fails, the configure script gives a hint that the
file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.a should be removed. Doing this certainly fixes
the cross-compilation and the ELF compilation still works as it links against
the .so version. However, removing the xlibmesa-gl-dev package isn't
feasible as its need by many other -dev packages and would break OpenGL
This looks like a bug in configure.ac, as why should a native static library
config.log is available from:
The last few lines from running configure are:
checking for GL/gl.h... yes
checking for GL/glx.h... yes
checking for GL/glext.h... yes
checking for up-to-date OpenGL version... yes
checking for glXCreateContext in -lGL... no
configure: error: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.a is present on your system.
This prevents linking to OpenGL. Delete the file and restart configure.
