#9359 closed patch (outdated)

Tools: Fix configure with updated MinGW g++

I updated my MinGW / MSYS with mingw-get yesterday and today g++ crashes during configure for ScummVM Tools.

I traced the problem to configure's use of the environment's TMP variable. g++ 4.5.2 seems to expect this to be set to a valid temporary directory. It crashes the second time it is called because after the first call TMP is set to it's return value.

I simply changed configure to use RETVAL (what it's actually storing) instead of TMP in this patch.

Fix configure for g++ 4.5.2 on MinGW

A similar fix had been applied to ScummVM's main configure with bd253a62aca2a0571ad61a3167278d3c5437467a.

It seems the tools configure script still has not been updated yet, since there is other changes to be merged from the scummvm sources, I am not quite sure whether we should apply this patch now or just port the above mentioned commit when merging.

I updated the tool's configure script with the changes of the main repo now. It should work again with MinGW. Thank you for your patch never the less.
