I want more control of the compilation process, linking the fltk relative to my project folder, without having the install, because I want to stay up to date with the project and linking it staticly. But it's pretty hard to get the necessery fltk dependecies to compile my application within my Makefile. The fltk-config --ldflags doesn't return all necessery libs dependecies, but I noted the first definition of LDLIBS var inside the fltk-config has the dependecies, but I can't get it in a nicer way other than copy manually.
So my setup is a mess,  so I'm doing this completly wrong?

Greg wrote a long answer that should cover what you need. Please read this as well.

The short answer to your question *might* be that you should use `fltk-config --ldstaticflags` rather than `fltk-config --ldflags`if you want static linking.

If you look at Greg's recipe he's using ldstaticflags as well.

In the make folder I got the NMake for windows and make Makefile for linux.

I'm not sure how this would apply to NMake Makefiles though but hope it helps.
