Geos uses gcc not g++ on MingW and OS X
|Reported by:||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by )
The recent changes to GEOS have broken the MinGW windows build (up to two weeks ago everything built fine).
The first problem is that the generated makefiles have libtool use gcc and not g++, thus the standard C++ library is not being linked. The problem is that autoconf sees there are no sources a library it will choose the C compiler, not the C++ compiler. This is now the case for GEOS, if you look at makefile.am in the source directory.
Note there are no sources anymore. The post below describes the problem - but provides no solution:
This problem gets some hits on Google, but I've found no solutions. Maybe someone knows how to fix this? For the moment I just manually update the makefiles (which is the best solution offered in the post above).
