Hi all,

    I am new to djgpp and I am sure that you all have seen
something like this before, but I'd appreciate any help...

    I am trying to get FSU's pthreads package to compile on
Win98. I unzipped the package preserving all
long file names.
    There is a simple configure.bat that copies the "correct"
makefile to a file named Makefile so that make can run it.

    So far so good. Now I run make and I get:

copy ../include/pthreadconfig.h config_internals.h
Invalid switch - /include
gcc -I../include  -O2 -DC_CONTEXT_SWITCH -DCLEANUP_HEAP -D_POSIX -D__dos__ -
 -DC_INTERFACE -DINTERNALS -o config_header2 config_header.c
In file included from config_header.c:35:
signal_internals.h:33: ../src/config_internals.h: No such file or directory
In file included from config_header.c:36:
internals.h:33: ../src/config_internals.h: No such file or directory
make.exe: *** [config_header2] Error 1

    After this I took a first glance at the Makefile itself, and it seems
directory slashes are all the wrong ones for DOS (indicated by Invalid
Moreover it looks like the amount  of editing involved would be about the
as hand compiling the sources sans makefile.

    Now the configure.bat warns that:

This DOS port assumes filename of style 8.3 (8 chars base name, 3 ext)
It may only work correctly under Windows95 if the Makefile is edited.

    Ok, but what do I edit? A bunch of the sources have long
file names. How do I get around this? I saw there is a way to
turn off numeric tails and force Win98 to truncate file names that
are greater than 8.3. Can this help?

    I have been running gxx with no problems. I have long file names enabled
in djgpp.env, and I have simply respected the 8.3 convention, and everything
fine windowed in Win98.

thanks for your help,
