Yes, I did mean the -s (use symlinks) ... I even reproduced this problem at least once because also my own notes had mixed -i with -s.

I applied the section on Windows here.

I don't understand your comments about avoiding -i.  Without -i, files won't be installed and your build will break (I believe).

Maybe instead you mean that -s (use symlinks) should be optional, so that it makes a copy of each file?

Ups, in my original patch I attached an old = wrong diff-file.
Please take the one attached here.

Tue 10 Jan 2006 09:13:45 PM UTC, original submission:  

Attached a patch for README.cvs which adresses the following problems I found:

1) the CVS server from has changed recently

2) the recommanded parameter "-i" for autoreconf may trigger errors later during "make dist.." once "cp -p ..." wants to copy permissions and ownership from system libraries, given that the user performing "make dist..." has not the proper rights/identity.

3) build instructions for "W32", especially replacing the (still undocumented) prepare_w32.bat (this also requires my patch for README.W32.template)
