1Installation on Woe32 (WinNT/2000/XP, Win95/98/ME):
2
3- Requires MS Visual C/C++ 4.0 or 5.0 or 6.0 or 7.0.
4
5  Note that binaries created with MSVC 7.0 should not be distributed: They
6  depend on a closed-source library 'msvcr70.dll' which is not normally part
7  of a Woe32 installation. You cannot distribute 'msvcr70.dll' with the
8  binaries - this would be a violation of the GPL and of the Microsoft EULA.
9  You can distribute the binaries without including 'msvcr70.dll', but this
10  will cause problems for users that don't have this library on their system.
11  Therefore it is not recommended. This problem does not occur with MSVC 6.0
12  and earlier.
13
14- Cannot build in a separate directory.
15
16- Build instructions:
17
18   Make sure that the MSVC4.0 or MSVC5.0 or MSVC6.0 or MSVC7.0 utilities
19   ("cl" etc.) are found in PATH. In a typical MSVC6.0 installation, this
20   can be achieved by running
21        C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\bin\vcvars32.bat
22   In a typical MSVC7.0 installation, it can be achieved by running
23        C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\Common7\Tools\vsvars32.bat
24
25   Decide which compilation model you will use:
26     MFLAGS=-ML (the default)  Single-threaded, statically linked - libc.lib
27     MFLAGS=-MT                Multi-threaded, statically linked  - libcmt.lib
28     MFLAGS=-MD                Multi-threaded, dynamically linked - msvcrt.lib
29
30   You need GNU libiconv (version 1.9 or newer) installed under c:\usr. If
31   you haven't yet, build and install GNU libiconv (version 1.9 or newer)
32   using the same MFLAGS. Then come back to here, to build GNU gettext.
33
34   For shared library (DLL):
35
36        nmake -f Makefile.msvc DLL=1 MFLAGS=-MD
37
38   For static library:
39
40        nmake -f Makefile.msvc MFLAGS=-MD
41
42   If you want to build both the shared and static library, you have to
43   unpack the gettext sources twice in different directories. Don't mix
44   the two formats; you cannot use the libintl.h generated for the static
45   library together with the shared library or vice versa.
46
47   Install it:
48
49         nmake -f Makefile.msvc DLL=1 MFLAGS=-MD install
50   or
51         nmake -f Makefile.msvc MFLAGS=-MD install
52
53- Installation:
54
55   Complete and automatic installation:
56
57         nmake -f Makefile.msvc DLL=1 MFLAGS=-MD install PREFIX=InstallBaseDirectory
58      or
59         nmake -f Makefile.msvc MFLAGS=-MD install PREFIX=InstallBaseDirectory
60
61      By default, the compiled package is installed under c:\usr. You can
62      specify a different directory by giving the installation base directory
63      in a PREFIX=... option in the install step. (DON'T give the PREFIX
64      already in the build step! This won't work.) You can also omit the
65      PREFIX=... option, thus installing everything under c:\usr, and then
66      move the installed package as a whole from c:\usr to a different
67      location.
