Trunk failing to build on Win32


I can successfully build Trunk on Linux and OSX but am having a very
tough time building on Win32. I have tried with VS6, VS8 and I am
stuck at the exact same error on both versions. I have installed
Cygwin version of Bison and Sed because GnuWin32 version of Bison
(2.1) fails to generate the proper parse.c that is required to build.

The error I am getting is as follows for Trunk version 14354:

Any ideas what it could be? I can see that the -def: line is blank
and is not reading in the proper DEFFILE. Even if I try and hardcode
the -def:msvcrt-ruby19.def it will continue but then the build will
fail further down the line.

Does anyone have a WORKING proper build environment for Win32? It
appears that README.win32 is a bit outdated or shall I say not as
specific as it needs to be to obtain a proper build under Win32.

Thanks for your help!

return code ‘0x2’

Hmm. I’m usually able to build trunk on win32. I was able to
as recently as last week. (I’m using 2003.)

As of tonight, though, after updating to SVN revision 14365, I’m
getting an error while building extensions:

compiling ripper

Microsoft ® Program Maintenance Utility Version 7.10.3077

NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don’t know how to make ‘ripper.c’
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: ‘.\miniruby.exe’ : return code ‘0x1’

… Hmm, strange, looks like ripper.c should have been built
using the .y.c rule in the Makefile.

I hacked in an explicit rule for ripper.c, based on the .y.c

ripper.c: ripper.y
$(BISON) -t -v ripper.y
sed -f $(top_srcdir)/tool/ytab.sed -e “/^#/[email protected]!” > [email protected]

After that, all of trunk built for me.

Note, I do have cygwin installed, which is providing some of
the tools like bison and sed which are used during some
parts of the build.
