# Running 'binary-dist' gives us a tree which isn't quite right
# for the purposes of creating a mingw/win32 install tree.
# This script rejigs that tree. The resulting tree is ready for
# packaging up in whatever form convenient (MSI installer / tar bundle/ ..)
# Modify a GHC binary distribution for the purposes of creating a
# mingw/win32 install tree. The resulting tree is ready for packaging
# up in whatever form is convenient (MSI installer / tar bundle/ ..)
#
# To use:
#
# foo$ cd <top of fptools build tree>
# foo$ make binary-dist (*)
# foo$ cd ghc-<version>
# foo$ ../distrib/prep-bin-dist-mingw
# - make sure you set BIN_DIST=1 in your mk/build.mk before you built GHC.
# $ cd <top of GHC build tree>
# $ make binary-dist
#
# * - making sure you've initially set BIN_DIST=1 in
# your build.mk ...
# This script is called at the appropriate point during 'make binary-dist'.
# The result is a tarball at the top of your GHC build tree, named something
# like ghc-6.6.1-i386-unknown-mingw32.tar.bz2.
#
# User tweakables
# Note: you normally don't need to set any of these, the script
# will try to figure them out for itself. If the heuristics don't
# work for whatever reason, you can override them using environment
# variables, e.g.
# mingw_top=<whatever> ../distrib/prep-bin-dist-mingw
# mingw_top=<whatever> make binary-dist
#
# - mingw_top -- location of mingw distribution tree (usually c:/mingw)
# - perl_dir -- location of non-cygwin perl.exe
