Description

I'm having major difficulties getting Xalan to compile with MinGW whereas the process with Xerces was painless.

I have attempted to modify the runConfigure and configure scripts to generate a makefile for my mingw configuration. In doing so, I have run across problems during configure in which configure thinks that the compiler is broken. I have not had the time to debug the file, so instead, I commented out the offending exit conditions.

Getting past configure, a surprising amount of code will actually compile. I will have to follow up with another comment to detail how far I have progressed (that information as at work).

In any case, I really need to get this resolved. I'll provide more feedback and testing if need be. Otherwise, I will have to seek another alternative to Xalan. Xalan seemed like such a good choice because of its compatability with xerces and (I was thinking its) cross platform support.
