in thread openssh build with Strawberry Perl provided gcc

strawberryperl doesn't provide sh.exe (msys), so you can't run ./configure , the standard installation dance

Yes, but you could use Strawberry's gcc from within the msys shell. All it takes is:

export PATH=/c/strawberry/c/bin:$PATH
As I understand it, that's essentially how the Strawberry developers build many of the libs (eg libssh2, gmp, mpfr) that ship with Strawberry Perl.

Cheers,
Rob

    No you couldn't

    I don't think so (sounds insane)

    You need sh to run autotools, otherwise you're poking in the dark, writing your own makefile -- and nobody does that, that is pointless busywork

      You need sh to run autotools, otherwise you're poking in the dark

      Yes - but autotools are part of MSYS, not gcc .... and MSYS therefore finds those autotools irrespective of which gcc is being used.

      I use different gcc compilers with MSYS all the time and it has never been an issue.
      Mostly I'll download and extract a library source, do the ./configure dance, and end up with a 32-bit build of that library.
      Then it's just a matter of:
      make distclean export PATH=/c/_64/mingw/bin:$PATH
      Then do the same ./configure dance and end up with a 64-bit build of the same library. (Needless to say, C:/_64/mingw/bin houses a 64-bit gcc.)
      I have, on occasion, even used a Strawberry compiler to build a C library in this way in the MSYS shell - though, mostly, the "external" gcc compiler that I use is not actually one of the ones that ship with Strawberry.

      And I did once ask kmx how he built gmp for x86 and x64 Strawberry - to which he replied "Same way as you".

      Cheers,
      Rob

        Hahaha!!!!

        Yes, I suggested that the OP install msys into his strawberryperl, and then I glossed over your chimes
