When building host applications in a Linux environment (this includes Cygwin) you need to have all of the following libraries otherwise your build will fail with errors.

 

  • Make
  • GCC
  • sed
  • awk
  • xargs
  • The standard C Library and its development headers
  • The Readline Library and its development headers (optional)
  • The Ncurses Library and its development headers (optional - only needed to support Readline)

 

Should you encounter build errors when attempting to make a Linux based host application, make sure these libraries are installed.
