./configure: line 6046: ` OSF*)’
configure: error: ./configure failed for unix
configure: error: ./configure failed for tcl
fix this bug with patch sourcenav-tk-configure-single-quote.patch, you can get this patch from sourcenav-tk-configure-single-quote.patch
patch -p1 < sourcenav-tk-configure-single-quote.patch
try step 3 again! the problem disapears.
5, fix fwritable-string problem
you will get the information “fwritable-strings” error
find . -name “Makefile”|xargs grep -n “fwritable-strings”
./tix/unix/tk8.3/Makefile:51:TIX_CFLAGS = $(CFLAGS) -fwritable-strings
./libgui/src/Makefile:133:LIBGUI_CFLAGS = -fwritable-strings
./libgui/library/Makefile:73:LIBGUI_CFLAGS = -fwritable-strings
./libgui/Makefile:74:LIBGUI_CFLAGS = -fwrita
