For testing. I want to make sure that there are no hidden bits in
configure/make files that *only* work when crosscompiling (the typical example
is forgetting to quote a variable that could contain Windows \ paths).
Besides, the idea of a sysroot is to match *exactly* what would be on the
non-native system. I could take the Fedora sysroot and copy it to a real
Windows machine, and it should just work. Now instead if I do this and install
the Windows version of pkg-config, it will not work because the .pc files
contains pointers to the Fedora images.
This isn't how we install on Windows at all. We use NSIS to
And the aim of this project is to free developers from having to
use Windows at all, not to allow people to copy binaries onto a
Windows machine and continue development there.
The *.pc files contain the correct paths for cross-compiling
to a Windows host from a Fedora build system, which is precisely
the aim of this project.
