  This are the sources of the basic X11 system used in the Unix environment
  AmiCygnix version 1.7. In the AmiCygnix directory you can find a skeleton
  of AmiCygnix, where the sources are located in "AmiCygnix/CygnixPPC/src/
  X11R6.3". The sources are separated in the X11R6.3 package in the subdirectory
  "xc" and the contribution package in the subdirectory "contrib".

  The sources (especially the sources of my included utility library) are
  compiled with the AmigaOS 4 SDK version 53.32.

  To make it easier for you, some already compiled utilities for AmigaOS 4 are
  located in "AmiCygnix/CygnixPPC/bin" and "AmiCygnix/CygnixPPC/X11R6.3/bin".

How to build

  Step A: Initialize the AmiCygnix environment

    Before you can build the AmiCygnix X11 software, the AmiCygnix environment
    must be initialized. There are two ways how you can do that:

    Option 1: You can use an existing AmiCygnix installation.
              For this copy the drawer "AmiCygnix-X11-src/CygnixPPC/src/X11R6.3"
              to "Cygnix:CygnixPPC/src" and continue with step B.

    Option 2: Copy the drawer "AmiCygnix-X11-src" to your desired destination
              and add this to your user-startup:

              ;BEGIN Cygnix
              Assign Cygnix: "<your path>/AmiCygnix-X11-src"
              Execute Cygnix:s/Cygnix-Startup
              ;END Cygnix

              Afterwards make a reset and continue with step B.

  Step B: Build the utility library "libaos4util-newlib.a".

    Open a shell, cd into the directory


    and type "make".

  Step C: Build and install the X11 system libs and programs.

    Open a shell, cd into the directory


    and type "make -f makefile.amigaos4 World". Good luck!

    Afterwards go to your coffe machine and drink several cans of coffee ;-).
    I guess this step needs over 1 1/2 hours (depends on your hardware).

    When the build process finished successfully, install the includes, libs and
    programs by typing "make -f makefile.amigaos4 install" into the shell.

  Step D: Build the contribution software.

    Open a shell, cd into the directory


    Afterwards launch the abc-shell by typing "sh" into the shell. Then type
    "xmkmf -a /Cygnix/CygnixPPC/src/X11R6.3/xc" to create the makefiles of the
    contribution package. Now you can build the programs with "make" and
    install them with "make install".

  If everything went o.k., you are ready to compile the packages of the
  AmiCygnix base package and tools package.
