Fixes Windows static library Makefile bug (1.38 KB, patch)

Description Tom Schoonjans 2016-01-10 04:17:36 UTC
When building gtk+3 on Windows using MinGW/MSYS, I ran into a build error involving the generating of the .lib static libraries, due to a dependency on non-existent libtool archives, which like like an oversight during the gtk2 to gtk3 transition.

Anyway, the patch is attached.

This looks correct, but i can't test it, because i don't have MS lib.exe

I've pushed the patch. If somebody complains we can always revert it, but I'd rather avoid having people not being able to build gtk on windows.

Thanks for committing the patch!

FYI, this problem only affected installations where lib.exe would get picked up by configure. Otherwise the build would run without hiccups...
