Subject: Re: [ecasound] Compiling under cygwin
From: Ryan*PC Gibson (

I answered my own question (with a little help from a developer here).
It looks like the config.h was defining "HAVE_SIGWAIT" even though it
should not. I commented out the following from config.h

/* Define if you have the sigwait function. */
/* #define HAVE_SIGWAIT 1 */

    Another error appeared, but it had to do with pyecasound which I
dont need so I also disabled it with --disable-pyecasound

So the final steps were:
% tar -xzvf /tmp/ecasound-2.3.2.tar.gz
% cd ecasound-2.3.2
% ./configure --disable-pyecasound
Edit config.h to comment out HAVE_SIGWAIT
% make
% make install

    Perhaps this post will help someone, someday, somewhere :)
