I'm keeping a fork with the alternate autotools build system, since it could coexist with the cmake you maintain would be great we could merge them.

Would it be useful for you? I needed to do that since on some platforms I use cmake doesn't build and cross compiling using cmake is far from straightforward/immediate as with autotools.

@jbergstroem

I'm intrigued. What platforms more specifically are you having issues with? I've always found cmake to "Just Work" on most platforms I've worked on. If this is gentoo-related, I'd be even more interested since I'm a pretty devoted user as well. Thanks!

One is gentoo prefix gcc-4.5 on macosx since

/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreFoundation.framework/Headers/CFBundle.h

seems to be incompatible with current C++ (char* to string implicit cast
got removed).

Some are C-only systems so you don't have much to do (cmake is a bit big
to be rewritten to fit that constraint I guess ^^;), the rest cross
compiling.

The thing that might be easy to fix in gentoo is the cross compiling
support since nowadays cmake should have something but so far I failed
to use it =| (the quickest way to try it is to setup a crossdev and then
trying to emerge poppler)

Thank you for the support =)

Seriously, please pull this in. Otherwise cross compiling with mingw fails to build.

@bendiken

Luca's fork builds and installs without incident on Windows XP with MinGW, unlike the canonical CMake-based fork.

However, there's an unfortunate typo in Makefile.am that results in libyail being built instead of libyajl as expected.

Note also the duplicated effort in #89. It would be good to get Autotools support in, one way or another, so that binaries requiring YAJL can be built on Windows with MinGW or Cygwin.

yo can you merge this?

literally just find and replace "libyail" to "libyajl" if that is what is preventing this from going in.

(please also add an autogen.sh: https://github.com/ice799/yajl/blob/autolol/autogen.sh)

let me know if i can help in any way with this

had a look at luca's fork and it's a bit rough:

  1. having version stated in two places sucks.
  2. BUILDING should be updated
  3. build is not working via autotools on my linux machine.

check autotools branch for the merge/update I tried. Now. I'll have a look at @ice799's fork...
