I would like fltk to support the mingw cross compiler under linux/UNix.
Problems at the moment
1) crosscompiling depends on --host option to configure
   currently fltk assumes that the library will be used where it is
   compiled. it uses uname to determine the platform.
      Solution if cross compiling the var cross_compiling is set to yes
               then use $host in stead of `uname` in .
2) configure assumes that uname on mingw/cygwin will be in uppercase.
   The cross compiler is called i[356]86-mingw32.
      Solution add *mingw* to the cases CYGWIN* | MINGW*
3) test/sodoku needs windres compiler and assumes that it is llways
   called windres.
            - change test/Makefile windres to ${WINDRES}
            - add WINDRES = @WINDRES@ to makeincludes
            - add  AC_CHECK_TOOL(WINDRES,windres) and AC_SUBST(WINDRES)
It might that the configure under mingw32 on windows will benefit from
these changes also.

I have enclosed a patch to the above effect against 1.18 subversion
version 5596. Change dir into fltk-1.1 and type patch -p0 < fltkpatch in order to apply it.

Those changes are not sufficient - we still run FLUID locally to build the examples, which is incompatible with cross-compiling anyways.

-1 on including this in 1.1.x.

That wont be a problem if you got wine on your system and change the line to wine ../fluid/fluid so cross compiling and wine will make this possible. you could consider the windres check though for the mingw users.

I like the platform being detected autommatically by fltk.
I like that compilation scheme and maintenance is kept as simple as possible (including configure, variable decl., ....).

-1 for that feature on fltk 2.0, 0 for fltk post 2.x
