Re: [hackers] MSYS2/Mingw primer

Hello Peter,

It's been a very long time since I looked at this problem space, so the
things discussed in the below thread might have bit-rotted in all sorts
of spectacular manners. But, for what it's worth:


The compile and ar-lib scripts mentioned are in upstream automake since
many years, so the variant with just AR=lib should be OK since I see
that AM_PROG_AR has already been added to the NTP configure.ac.

Who knows, this might be a way forward? I'm of course not holding my
breath, and sadly don't really have any time to spend...

Thanks for the input! Let's see how this evolves. ;-)
