Re: Linking problem when compiling under MinGW

I'm building Gtk2 under MinGW.

Glib and Cairo compiled ok, the tests did  not do so well, but anyway.

With Gtk2 I'm stuck with an "undefined reference to" problem: the last
$(INST_DYNAMIC) step seems to miss references to Glib.dll and Cairo.dll.

If I add Glib.dll with a full path (c:/perl/site/lib/auto/Glib/) before
the last token (dll.exp) into the link commands, I get rid of all
undefined references to functions in Glib.dll. But it leaves undefined
references, e.g. to cairo_object_from_sv, which are in Cairo.dll. But
having both Glib.dll _and_ Cairo.dll in the link command does not seem
to help, g++ does not seem to see Cairo.dll.

First of all, you'll need Cairo >= 1.00, which is the version that first
started properly exporting its symbols.  Then you'll somehow need to
convince your linker to accept both Glib.dll and Cairo.dll; both are
needed.  There's a hack for Win32 at the end of Gtk2's Makefile.PL,
maybe it can be adapted for MinGW.
