> I'm compiling from SVN head on MinGW + MSYS, under Windows 2000.
> configure.ac contains the following lines:
> dnl export where the datadir is going to be installed
> FC_EXPAND_DIR(FREECIV_DATADIR, "$datadir/freeciv")
> if test x"$MINGW32" = xyes; then
> CPPFLAGS="$CPPFLAGS -DDEFAULT_DATA_PATH=\\\"$DEFAULT_DATA_PATH\\\""
> This doesn't work when compiling under a MSYS shell. It generates
> errors, saying "data: command not found", "/usr/local/share/freeciv: is

> A workaround is to eliminate the test for MINGW32:
> dnl if test x"$MINGW32" = xyes; then
> dnl DEFAULT_DATA_PATH=".;data;~/.freeciv;$datadir/freeciv"
> dnl else
> dnl fi
