guillaumechereau Fix bug of cycles on windows
There is something wrong with cycles.  It crashes when not compiled with
the proper flags.

I could try to fix it, but I rather just get ride of cycles alltogether.

The building system uses scons. You can compile in debug with 'scons', and in release with 'scons debug=0'. On Windows, I only tried to build with msys2. The code is in C99, using some gnu extensions, so it does not compile with msvc.


Install dependencies: scons pkg-config libglfw3-dev libgtk-3-dev

Then to build:

make release


You need to install msys2 mingw, and the following packages:

pacman -S mingw-w64-x86_64-gcc
pacman -S mingw-w64-x86_64-glfw
pacman -S mingw-w64-x86_64-libtre-git
pacman -S scons
pacman -S make

Then to build:

make release
