Subject Building IB6
Author Mike Nordell
I was pointed to this mailing-list from interbase.public.general. If it's
the wrong place for these kind of questions, please let me know.

I've had a "somewhat limited" success in building IB6 under Win32 using VC6,
and a few questions surfaced.

Is there really no other way to make the build work other than somehow
already have the binaries you're trying to build (i.e. it's a a complete
deadlock situation)?

The signal-to-noise ratio when building is really, *really*, bad. With about
1-5 thousand (!) warnings per lib/dll/exe it's close to impossible to find
the *real* problems. Not that I'd say that this amount of warnings isn't a
real problem. :-)

And that brings me to the burning issue, patches. Where is one supposed to
send these, and what format is preferred?
