Cygwin packages for make-3.81 with DOS path patches, and make-3.82

Rob Walker and Jack Pham were tired of waiting for Cygwin to update their make-3.81 package with the DOS path patches made available by Eli Zaretskii.  So, they decided to construct the package themselves, according to instructions given here:

http://cygwin.com/setup.html

Unfortunately, the Cygwin make maintainer hasn't accepted this updated package, necessitating alternate delivery.

This page is a stop-gap measure until Cygwin updates their version of make (either with make-3.81 patches or by moving to make-3.82).

The attachments below are:
  • make-3.81-DOS_PATHS_on_cygwin_patch.tar.gz: a source tree for constructing the modified Cygwin make binary and source packages.
  • make-3.81-4.tar.bz2: pre-built Cygwin binary package containing the patched version of make-3.81
  • make-3.81-4-src.tar.bz2: pre-built Cygwin source package for the patched make, including the reversion patch
  • setup.hint: Cygwin-style setup.hint for setup.exe
To use the pre-built packages, you can simply unpack them over the top of your existing Cygwin installation.  Like so:

bzcat make-3.81-4.tar.bz2 | (cd / && tar xvf - )

As of 12/23/2009, the pre-built packages are for Cygwin 1.7.  If you need this version of make for Cygwin 1.5, you can use the "DOS_PATHS" source package below to construct it.

As of 7/27/2010, make-3.82 supports DOS paths on Cygwin.  This should obviate the need for this site, but for completeness' sake, I've constructed make-3.82 packages for Cygwin 1.7.
