I got FLTK from the final commit on master (git clone https://...) and I tried to build it on Manjaro linux. I use the following configuration settings: `./configure --disable-gl --disable-xinerama --enable-shared`. Then I built the library with `make -j8` and there was no shared libraries to be found.

For historical reasons the shared libraries are built in the 'src' folder if you're using configure/make. IMHO a bad choice, but that's how it is.

I updated the README file 'lib/README.txt' to clarify this.

The examples using 'CC' or 'gcc' are only that: examples. I admit that using 'c++', 'g++', 'clang++' in these examples would have been a better choice, but this part of the docs is very old and not updated frequently. That said, yes, you need a C++ compiler to build FLTK.

I also updated the docs which can be found within about an hour on our GitLab mirror:
