#8571 closed patch

Make: reconfigure on configure change

Reported by: lordhoto Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: --Other--
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:



this simple patch adds automatic reconfiguring if configure changes. I think it is understandable what it does. Any comments? I would remark that it would be nicer not to run configure with no paramaters if is missing, but my knowlegde of GNU make ends there. I hope it's any useful. I assign this one to Fingolfin since he works on the build system.

Sorry, I was on vacation else I would have looked at this earlier ... :-)

The main issue with this patch is that the reconfigure is not complete: It does not store the values of the CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS environment variables. Hence, on my system (which relies on those), the reconf fails (or rather, it fails to detect all the libraries, so while ScummVM still builds, it now is built w/o FLAC support, for example).

I just noticed I once wrote a TODO list entry for this, too:

* Allow automatic re-runs of configure (this would have to 'save' the values of env vars like CXXFLAGS and also command line params).
