I'm trying to compile a program from source. It requires the use of
CMAKE and the QT framework, neither of which I have ever used before.
When I run [cmake -G "MinGW Makefiles" <codebase>], I get a no errors
and a Makefile. If I run make, it downloads the optional LibXMLSec,
then it attempts to run the command "mingw32-configure"
If I disable xmlsec, it moves on to OpenJpeg which also attempts to
I do not have "mingw32-configure", the mingw site has no hits for a
search on "mingw32-configure", most web hits for "mingw32-configure"
call it a wrapper and are usually talking about Fedora/SUSE.
Before you chastise me for using a nearly 2 year out-of-date version
of minGW, it contains gcc 4.6, which is too new for QT4 (says it
requires gcc 4.4). If I read the archives correctly I should be using
minGW from 2009-06.... But I'm seeing if it will work with 4.6...
The error is:
[ 1%] Performing configure step for '09_OpenJPEG'
'mingw32-configure' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

patch-2.5.9-7-bin.zip (was the first undocumented bump I hit)

There is no program called mingw32-configure.
If no person has answered your email for the last few weeks, it is
probably because no person has anything to say about mingw32-configure,
because it never existed. I have the latest MinGW (with gcc 4.8.1) and I
installed the extra languages, so I have mingw32-g++, mingw32-gfortran,
and mingw32-gnat, but no mingw32-configure.
Something is broken, either in cmake, or in the package that you are
building. Perhaps it meant to run 'configure' (which is a shell script
in many packages), not 'mingw32-configure'?
