We should also point people to an MDC page or similar explaining that they want to do a relative configure if they want to switch with impunity.
(In reply to comment #0) > We should also point people to an MDC page or similar explaining that they want > to do a relative configure if they want to switch with impunity. Have a particular page in mind? [I don't really want to direct people to a page without a concise one already being written, and I hate Deki so much that I won't write it]

FTR I hate Deki too, but I wrote https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Gmake_vs._Pymake
This incorporates the patch in 485411, as well as adds a test for the opposite case (GNUMake from Pymake) and adds a pointer at the MDC page. Not tested on my end [I won't be able to for a few days min] due to my current builds being relative dirs and pymake.

Comment on attachment 487171 [details] [diff] [review] v2.1 for checkin Actually, we need to test to make sure that we're on Windows. We don't want to reject a path like /home/khuey/mozilla-central on Linux.

This should do it. Wrapping using HOST_OS_ARCH since we only care about _what_ is building, not _where_ its target is.
..and from the right repo this time.
Comment on attachment 487279 [details] [diff] [review] v2.2 (from right repo) Nit: Use GNU Make (not GNU-Make) in both places, use Pymake or pymake (don't capitalize the m) r=me

Comment on attachment 487814 [details] [diff] [review] c-c port >+$(error Windows-style srcdir being used with GNU make. Did you mean to run $(topsrcdir)/build/pymake/make.py instead? [see-also: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Gmake_vs._Pymake]) Isn't this $(topsrcdir)/mozilla/build/pymake/make.py instead?
