|Is flexdll properly installed?|

1) I just noticed that it was required to install flexdll to compile Ocaml3.11 on windows (with MSCV). The issue is that flexdll license is opensource license, not the caml consortium license. It would be problematic for us to include an open source software inside out tool.
How is possible to solve this legal issue?
2) anyway, i cannot compile on Windows. "make -f Makefile.nt world" ends up with the message "File "myocamlbuild_config.ml", line 20, characters 46-55:
Error: Unbound value ocamlhome
e:\users\dwl\R207\AUTDwlINFR207\AUTLciKernel\caml_bin\dosonly\make.exe: *** [myocamlbuild_config.cmo] Error 2", cf the log file make_world.log
|What is the contents of your config/Makefile (not config/Makefile.msvc)? Looks like the PREFIX= line is incorrect.|
I retry today with ocaml3.11.1. It seems to work better. I managed to compile Ocaml until the step "make -f Makefile.nt opt". However, I could not compile the debugger : i had to set variable DEBUGGER to empty in file Makefile.msvc.
If I try to compiler the debugger, "cd debugger && make -f Makefile.nt all", I get the following message : ../ocamlcomp.sh -c -warn-error A -I ../utils -I ../parsing -I ../typing -I ../bytecomp -I ../toplevel -I ../otherlibs/win32unix dynlink.mli
Fatal error: cannot find file /cygdrive/e/users/dwl/dev/R209/AUTdwlINFR209/AUTLciKernel/caml_src/ocaml-3.11.1/ocamlc
It looks like a confusion between DOS and unix pathes.
When I launch "make -f Makefile.nt opt.opt", I get the same kind of error message.
Then I analyzed the issue more precisely, by adding
echo "dir = $topdir"
in file ocamlcomp.sh, I see the absolute path "/cygdrive/e/..." instead of a relative path. So I replaced the content of ocamlcomp.sh by :
exec $topdir/boot/ocamlrun $topdir/ocamlc -nostdlib -I $topdir/stdlib "$@"
it works but it is very tedious as the ocamlcomp.sh and ocamlcompopt.sh are overwritten at each build step.
Do you have an idea for a better patch ?
I found better patch this morning : it seems that with the version of gnu-make I have, relative path are transformed in absolute cygwin pathes. So I changed some Makefile by adding double quotes around relatives pathes.
In the debugger/Makefile.shared, I changed the line
and did the same in some otehr makefiles.

You can close the issue : I just understand that all my trouble was coming from the fact that I was using the mingw version of gnu-make instead of the cygwin-version!!!
PS : it used to work with 3.10 but not anymore with 3.11
