FWIW this change breaks old mingw variants. Not that it matters except that I can't use the newer mingw's to compile the 32-bit chain because of the GEOS issues (with the newer GCC) without having to install a legacy VStudio VC++ Express companion. But I've gotten into the habit of hacking up my scripts to function, so carry on.

Can you say how it breaks them? The idea was just to do it enough differently that they would all work.

Hmm I'll double-check. I assumed you made the same change as you had done on 2.0 a while ago and I have a hacked script for 2.0 for my mingw 32-bit to get around it. I'll check next chance I get.

confirmed you change breaks my ability to regress. Though now I can't seem to get it back into a state I can compile.

The issue before is the old mingw doesn't like this line in regress/

srcdir=$(shell bash -c "pwd -W")

So I would have a hacked script that has this instead:

srcdir=$(shell pwd -W)

but even that isn't working for me either:(

It's giving me a:

sed 's,$libdir,c:/projects/postgis/branches/1.5/regress/00-regress-install/lib,g' ../postgis/postgis.sql > postgis.sql
/bin/sh: ./run_test: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [check] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/c/projects/postgis/branches/1.5/regress'
make: *** [check] Error 2

I have to also change the run_test from
