Arf, after inspecting this pacman libtool generated script, I noticed
the PATH directories were totally messed up.
And that is once again because of directory whitespaces. The default
HOME in cygwin is the user directory, so :
/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/<username>
So I naturally started working there, but it looks like GNU tools in
general play quite badly with it.
I am tired of trying to debug this crap so I just moved everything in
a dir with no spaces, and now it is a bit better.
At least now src/pacman/pacman works properly using the correct libalpm.
But looks like there is still something wrong :
$ ls -al src/pacman/.libs
-rw-r--r-- 1 xav Some 7756 Aug 4 11:30 lt-pacman.c
-rwxr-xr-x 1 xav Some 188468 Aug 4 11:29 pacman.exe
So lt-pacman does not get compiled or something, I don't know..
Actually, I did not even know the differences between lt-pacman and
pacman, but I just found out :
$ ldd src/pacman/.libs/lt-pacman
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xb80a0000)
libdownload.so => /usr/lib/libdownload.so (0xb8069000)
libarchive.so.2 => /usr/lib/libarchive.so.2 (0xb803d000)
$ ldd src/pacman/.libs/pacman
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xb8085000)
libalpm.so.3 => not found
libdownload.so => /usr/lib/libdownload.so (0xb806e000)
libarchive.so.2 => /usr/lib/libarchive.so.2 (0xb8042000)
So lt-pacman is indeed the one we wants and links to the correct
But it does not get built on cygwin..
