That's a good point. And yes, I think it would break if both extensions
differed. On the other hand I have no idea on how to make automake
generate rules for $(BUILD_EXEEXT). I don't think it can.
Interestingly, I mistakenly used genshader$(EXEEXT) initially, but that
causes automake to spew out warnings that these "rules" (which aren't
really rules at all) were overriding previous commands for the same
target. So while $(BUILD_EXEEXT) is the right extension to use, it also
works around a shortcoming in automake. Another shortcoming of automake
will cause this to break when doing MinGW->Unix and Unix->MinGW cross-
A different approach of this patch was to move genshader and genunifont
to a tools subdirectory with a separate Makefile.am and overwrite the
CC, CFLAGS and LDFLAGS variables in that directory only, but automake
doesn't accept that either because CFLAGS is considered a user variable
and therefore can't be overwritten.
I think this is as good as it gets for now. I've tried to fix this kind
of problem in automake several times but never managed to. Perhaps it's
time to move on to something like SCons...
