Hi, David,

it is a good start, but unfortunately not quite correct yet. See the
comments below.

That one is not obvious, but it is wrong anyway. The original makefile
uses headers generated with cppumaker -C, as to not require unoapi.rdb
at runtime. I am afraid you will have to wait a few days till
feature/gbuild_components is integrated into master. Then you should use
gb_Executable_add_internal_comprehensive_api .

This is most certainly useless. I cannot imagine why would the regcomp
executable need a graphic library .-)

Another thing that is not obvious (and I think even documented anywhere
at libreoffice) is that we want the module integrated into the old build
system as well. To do that, just copy prj/makefile.mk from some already
converted module, remove all lines containing "nmake" from prj/build.lst
(actually I suppose that could be "everything but first two lines") and
add something like

pt  cpputools\prj   nmake   -   all pt_prj NULL

. Also remove content from prj/d.lst .

Also, after you are done, you can remove the now useless makefile.mk
files (except the one in prj, of course).
