wget built very easily with Paul's environment...

I assumed that that was the case, since Paul suggests starting with wget. As I said, I need some guidance, but I also need the time to tackle it again. The main objective, with this project, is to get the build environment to work with a simple project that is known to work, since others have done it. After that, it is easier to move on to more complicated projects.

I'd suggest starting with a simple command line app like wget

People seem to want to be ambitious and start with something like virtualbox!

I was trying to lead a thread to get wget to build. The latest one wasn't cooperating. Then OS2world ended. I did download an older version, which has been built in the OS/2 environment previously, but I have done nothing with it, other than discover that it won't build either. I am pretty sure that it is just a minor setup problem, but I don't see what it might be, and need some guidance from those who know about these things.

I intend to restart that thread, sometime early next year, unless somebody else wants to start it earlier. Hopefully, it will serve as a guide for others, but it should also serve as a guide to get the build environment to work with a basic project, before a user decides to tackle more complicated things, like virtualbox.   ;D
