I am trying to install protobuf on windows using cygwin and MinGW and
I haven't been able to succesfully run the make command. It seems the
problem in with one of the library files. It gives me the following
Warning: This system can not link to static lib archive
libprotobuf.la. i have the capability to make that librar
automatically link in when you link to this library. But I cna only do
htis if you have a shared versino of the library, which you do not
appear to have.
libtool: link: warning: undefined symbols not allowed in i686-pc-
cygwin shared libraries
eventually it says there is a libprotobuf.a file inside /.libs dir
that cannot be found (no such file or directory) and then stops
executing. The file IS there, I checked.
I am really that familiar with lib files and using Unix environments
inside windows so I'd appreciate if anyone could tell me what is wrong
