I didn't closely follow the instructions (built without bootstrap, and had some
problem finding ffmpeg (no pkg-config), but my build did present the normal
GUI (don't know if it did anything useful).
I updated/upgraded some cygwin tools, added pkg-config and gettext, ran
bootstrap and then configure with:
export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/win32/include -I/usr/win32/include/ebmi"
CC="gcc -mno-cygwin" CXX="g++ -mno-cygwin" \
--enable-nls --enable-sdl --with-sdl-config-path=/usr/win32/bin \
--enable-ffmpeg --with-ffmpeg-mp3lame --with-ffmpeg-faac \
--with-ffmpeg-zlib --enable-faad --enable-flac --enable-theora \
--enable-livedotcom --with-livedotcom-tree=/usr/win32/live.com \
--enable-caca --with-caca-config-path=/usr/win32/bin \
--disable-cddax --disable-vcdx --enable-goom \
--enable-twolame --enable-dvdread \
configure and make was no problem but running it I get:
VLC media player 0.8.5 Janus

 rc interface:
Warning: if you can't access the GUI anymore, open a command-line window, go
to the directory where you installed VLC and run "vlc -I wx"
Running in a straight dosbox brings up a new window with the textual remote
control interface enabled.
vlc -I wx
doesn't seem to make a difference...
Should it run from the source directory after a build? What magic do I need
