Re: [Nautilus-list] eel compilation problem

Actually, the up-to-date CVS version is ok.  I dont think this is a real
build problem.  Tinderbox is green.

A few people on #nautilus (tigert for one) have reported the same

I think that the problem is build dependency which nautilus hackers that
user maintainer mode dont see.  Thats probably everyone.

Heres my theory of why this is happening.

A few days ago, Maciej changed eel to automatically generated gtk
enumerations for all C enums defined in any eel header.

Now, the code that populates the enumerations  - eel-types.c and
eel-type-builtins-evals.c (included from eel-types.c) have a dependency
on the header in question.  In this case eel-dnd.h which Darin changed

So the problem is that the auto generated eel-type-builtins-evals.c
doesnt have a proper dependency on the headers that are used to generate
it - even if a little indirectly because of the way works.

Im not sure why this works with maintainer mode but not otherwise.

How to fix it ?  Anyone have ideas ?  Maybe its as simple as appending
$(eel_headers) to the dependency list for eel-type-builtins-evals.c (and
maybe the other auto generated files) ?

Maybe the autogenerated .c files should be compiled instead of being
#included from eel-types.c ?  Probably not the way is
designed to work.
