Re: compiling glib for ecos?

Thanks Jonathan,

I'll do as you suggest. I've been playing around with
the configuration to see what it takes to get it built,
then I'll look into making a package. so far i've been
hand tweaking the configure script and the config 
output script.

Of course if it's useful I'll feed it back to the
community. I wasn't sure how hard this was and
didn't want to appear presumputious by offering
something trivial.
