A lot of open-source stuff from Linux uses the untar then ./configure then make method of compiling to install. When porting such things to AmigaOS, does one use an Amiga configure program/script, or does that part go away? If it is used, does one have to rewrite the program's configure information for ./configure to use, or should it work with Amiga's ./configure setup as it is? Does one need to use abc-shell for that?
I'm just trying to get some basics sorted out for this stuff, and I appreciate all the help until I'm useful. I'm sure there's plenty more I'll be asking about... :)
P.S. Are answers available for both OS4-native coding/compiling as well as for cross-compiling from Linux on my laptop, as my laptop is what I'll mostly be able to access and use? (I do plan to get my XE running a VNC server soon though)
