So I build and I test, trying to try out an sdl example and poop, can't load libsdl yada yada.
So I run Configure.pl with the --ask option (making sure all my libs are in a row), and I figure what the hey, I might as well install this time (nmake install),
and what do I see? I see perl.exe yada yada yada | sh error error.
Confused? Me too. You need perl to configure, a make program to make, but what do you need sh for?
I guess that's the price of progress, someone on the development team don't know much about perl (or don't got time to reinvent install.sh or whatever) and that's what you end up with.
I wonder when that happened :(
Hmm, install (looks like the right one) is nicely spaced plenty of comments, and still only 250 lines. Opportunity? I think so. Who knows sed/awk? :)
