I am looking for the source code to produce the Windows Installer. Specifically with the GTK2 client. I look through the source tarball I downloaded and I don't find it. I was able to successfully build Freeciv in a MSYS environment, but the installation is stuck in that environment, dependent on the user running MSYS. I want all the .dlls to get installed in the app directory so that it's standalone, so that I can test how it would behave for a Windows end user. I figure someone has already got those sources / scripts somewhere, they are just not in source control?
It would be nice to have them publically available so that other people can reproduce and test the build. I know you Unixen are used to having every single imaginable library as a readily installed package and centrally shared for all apps, but Windows culture is exactly the opposite. No packages for open source libraries, no sharing, every app replicates its own libraries and doesn't trust anyone else to provide versions of them. Sure there is Cygwin but that's not Windows. I did get a MinGW/MSYS build system together, with a fair amount of manual labor installing libraries. Actually I updated the Install-Windows wiki page a bit, if anyone noticed. http://freeciv.wikia.com/wiki/Install-Windows Mostly, life is easier if you grab the all-in-one GTK+ stack.
