Installing CRM114 on Cygwin

As is typical with installing anything in cygwin, CRM114 took some tweaking to get it to install properly. The CRM114 Discriminator is a “Controllable Regex Mutilator” according to their website. In engilish it is an complex and interesting tool to “examine incoming e-mail, system log streams, data files or other data streams, and to sort, filter, or alter the incoming files or data streams according to the user’s wildest desires.” Mostly it is used to sort spam.

Anyway, here is what I needed to do to install crm114 under cygwin. I used the 20040231-BlameYokohama version of CRM114. First, get the libiconv, gettext and procmail from cygwin. Then get the Mew from (I used version 3.3.) Install mew-3.3 with cd bin && ./configure && make && make install. This will give you mewdecode and mewencode. From the CRM114 package cd into tre directory and install with ./configure && make && make install. Now, back in the main CRM114 dir, edit the Makefile to add the following lines somewhere after the initial definitions.

CFLAGS += -I/usr/local/include
LDFLAGS += -L/usr/local/lib
LIBS += -lintl -liconv

Finally, add $(LDFLAGS) to each of the compilation step for the utilities (cssdiff, cssmerge, cssutil). It should look something like this:

cssutil: cssutil.c crm114.h crm114_structs.h crm114_config.h crm114_sysincludes.h
        $(CC)  $(CFLAGS) -c cssutil.c -o cssutil.o
        $(CC)  $(CFLAGS) $(LDFLAGS) cssutil.o -static -lm -ltre -o cssutil

Now run make and you should get everything compiled and left in the current directory.
