I’ve given up on Cygwin, switching to Windows Subsystem for Linux, but trying the 64 bit version just now dies on the 1st make instruction.


Running: make

make: Circular kernel/version.fs <- kernel/version.fs dependency dropped.

./preforth -p ".:~+:." prims2x.fs -e "c-flag on s\" prim.i\" save-mem out-filename 2! s\" "prim.b"\" ' output-c ' output-c-combined process-file bye" >engine/prim.i


The WSL version finishes the BUILD-FROM-SCRATCH process, but does get the same error you mentioned:


checking for swig... /usr/bin/swig

swig error : Unrecognized option -forth

Use 'swig -help' for available options.

configure: WARNING: *** Swig without -forth. Building library buildings  from tarball.

configure: creating ./config.status


I remember looking into that a while ago, but obviously, I never found a way to get around it yet.


I doubt I had time to report it either.


No doc build either.

I used to be able to compile GForth on Cygwin, long time ago.


Now I'm trying again, with several errors.


1st one I'd like to track down is the configure program saying


No Swig with -forth



Anyone have any idea where I can get a swig that actually supports the forth

language in its output.  Google has been no help with this.
