ENGINE changes in 0.9.8

Jonathon Green
Hi List,

I have a question regarding the change to build the
engines as seperate shared libraries in 0.9.8.

The unix plaform builds that I've attempted behave as
described, however the Windows build (using the nmake
build process not Cygwin) does not link seperate dlls
for the engines and they are still all linked into the
main libeay32.dll.

I'm wondering what the reasoning behind this
difference is, and whether there's a plan to
eventually make the nmake build uniform with the rest?

I apologise if I've missed somewhere that this has
been described already.

Thanks,

Jon

No you haven't missed anything. I just haven't had time to look into this yet.

Doing anything out of the ordinary for the mk1mf builds (those that use nmake
et al) needs special handling and some hacking ot the makefile generation
scripts.
