Hi all !

I am trying to build kaffe on windows xp with cygwin. Unfortunatelly I 
am getting a strange error:

make[4]: Entering directory 
mprec.c:101: warning: useless keyword or type name in empty declaration
mprec.c:101: warning: empty declaration
mprec.c:104: warning: static declaration of 'calloc' follows non-static 
mprec.c:105: error: parse error before '{' token
mprec.c:107: error: parse error before numeric constant
mprec.c:107: warning: type defaults to `int' in declaration of `memset'
mprec.c:107: error: conflicting types for 'memset'
mprec.c:107: error: conflicting types for 'memset'

mprec.c:104: warning: 'calloc' declared `static' but never defined
make[4]: *** [mprec.lo] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory 

There is nothing suspicious in the code lines of mprec.c, so it seems to 
me to be again any configuration error?

I have configured with the following line:
./configure --disable-boehm-gc-configuration --without-x 
-awt --without-kaffe-qt-awt --without-kaffe-x-awt --enable-debug 
ging --disable-examples --cache-file=/dev/null --srcdir=. 
--disable-gtk-peer --e
nable-gcj --with-gcj --disable-fastjar --enable-plugin=no 
--disable-plugin --wit
h-gc=kaffe-gc --disable-native-awt --with-staticvm --with-staticbin 
ds=unix-jthreads --enable-pure-java-math --disable-shared --with-pic=no

I've applied the jikes patches and everything worked fine until that 
point ...
Can someone help me?

By the way, is there any way to convert the MS VC6 project files, from 
the 'kaffe-msvc' cvs directory, into MS VC 2003 capable format? The 
automatic project conversion of the IDE fails when opening the .dsp and 
.dsw files from that source! Are those project files (a little) up to 
date? Or perhaps anyone has some other VC project files ;-) ?

Anyway, thank you in advance for any replies!
