Subject Re: [code] main/dmake
Date Wed, 16 Nov 2011 13:06:13 GMT

I have a first version ready that works like outlined before.  Details 
and the patch can be found in issue 108604 

I did not yet remove the internal dmake source code, yet.  I would like 
to have the downloading and building better tested before removing it. 
Having no functioning dmake executable would be a very severe build breaker.

I tested this on Windows and Linux with the source code package provided 
by Pedro (can be found at 
but I need help to test this more thoroughly.  So, please apply the 
patch and play around with the --with-dmake-path and --with-dmake-url 

Best regards,
