How to compile PennMUSH 1.7.x under Windows (MinGW32 and MSys)
--------------------------------------------------------------
by Ervin Hearn III <noltar@korongil.net>

Last update: Sunday, 27 June 2004

A note on install locations:
The entire process goes much more smoothly if you install
all of the required packages in directories that do not have
spaces anywhere in the path name. So Program Files is not
the best location.


 1. Download and install the MinGW GNU Toolsets for Windows
    from http://www.mingw.org/

 2. Download and install ActiveState Perl for Windows from
    http://www.activestate.com/ActivePerl/

 3. Download and install the MSys package for Windows from
    http://www.mingw.org/ This should be installed after
    you have installed MinGW and ActivePerl

 4. Make certain that your MinGW and Perl locations are
    properly moutned in your MSys /etc/fstab

    An example fstab content is:

    #Win32_Path		Mount_Point
    c:/mingw		/mingw
    c:/perl		/perl

 5. `cd' to the desired install location with the .tar.gz file
    and unpack the downloaded <version> with:

    tar xzf pennmush-<version>.tar.gz

 6. cd pennmush then type:

    ./Configure -d

    *** Note: This should configure the mush appropriately
    *** if it fails to, you can attempt ./Configure
    *** alone and use the mingw32 hints option when asked

 7. Now type:

    cp options.h.dist options.h

    and edit options.h as desired, keeping the following
    suggestions in mind:

    a. Do *NOT* define NT_TCP
    b. Use MALLOC_PACKAGE 0
    c. Do *NOT* define INFO_SLAVE 

    Hopefully the last be changed in the future.
    Also, 'make update' does not currently work correctly with
    Msys (due to Msys problems), and this will also hopefully get
    worked around in the future. 

 8. Also, cp game/mushcnf.dist game/mush.cnf and edit.

 9. Do a `make install' This will build the necessary files and
    install the necessary symbolic links. You can ignore the
    warnings regarding the redefinition of BYTE and LONG which
    are given for funcrypt.c mycrypt.c and/or shs.c.

10. Read game/README and follow those instructions. For MinGW
    you will also need to edit game/restart and explicitly
    set the GAMEDIR variable to your installation path, an
    example is:
    
    /home/noltar/pennmush/game
