Building software on Interix, GCC's -fpic, and mixing binary/source packages
I'm using Interix 3.5 on Windows XP Home SP2.
I'm having trouble building packages on Interix. Many packages build fine, but some require GCC. Those that do will attempt to build gcc, and then fail with "/usr/pkgsrc/lang/gcc/work/.wrapper/bin/gcc: Interix GNU cc doesn't support `-fpic'."
This even happens for perl, which I am specifically admonished to install in the pkgsrc guide. There is a binary package for Perl on ftp.netbsd.org, but I can't seem to build my own. Why is this?
This actually brings me to another problem I'm having - I have perl installed from the aforementioned binary package, but when I try to compile Eterm from pkgsrc/x11/eterm, it tries to compile perl again. It says "=> Required installed package perl>=
5.8.3nb1: NOT found", but /usr/pkg/bin/perl -v reports "This is perl, v5.8.8 built for i386-interix3-thread-multi". What's going on here?
Is there a way around these things? I feel like I must have missed something, but I've looked and looked and I'm not able to find a solution.
 Yes, really: http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/h/2883
