Ok I have been trying to get the tree working under BeOS. I got the
automake etc from the BeBits app VIM6.1. Now it bootstraps ok. I had
to remove libdl.so and dlfnc.h other wise the detection and usage got
confused as per my previous message. If I then configure and make and
it does not compile the ffmpeg.h file, so I removed the ffmpeg from my
confugre options. Then I got the error that beos_specific.c did not
exist for beos_specific.o to be built. Odd as it has always been a
*.cpp file. So I renamed that they I get the warning that it is
overriding the build options for beos_specific but everything compiles.
Cool I think I finally got back to where I could work on the aout, but
no!! The executable outputs the startup version line then segfaults
with no stack trace.
I am totally out of my depth. I cannot get this to work in the time I
have to spend on it. Concider this a cry for help!
