[Stackless] trying to include zlib into stackless library

Hi Henk, Stackless,

Thanks for the advice, but I am still having problems (and return errors of: "can't decompress data; zlib not available")

I am not sure where I am going wrong.

my current project directory structure is as follows:
.../Stackless/SCStackless/    <-- where my project will be built
.../Stackless/zlib/zlib-1.2.3/libz.a    <-- where my zlib library was built
.../Stackless/python-2.6.1-stackless/  <-- where I saved the stackless source code.
.../Stackless/Stackless261/   <-- target directory to build stackless 2.6.1 in.

then in my Stackless261 directory I issued the following configuration command:
../python-2.6.1-stackless/configure AR=arm-elf-ar --verbose --with-threads=no --build=i686-pc-cygwin --host=arm-elf LDFLAGS="-mlittle-endian -mthumb-interwork" BASECFLAGS="-DOAT_BUILD -fno-inline -g -mlittle-endian -mthumb-interwork" --with-zlib

I've tried --with-zlib=... and it hasn't appeared to do anything - The zlib module is not getting included into Modules/config.c. Looking further into Modules/Setup, it appears to be a mostly deprecated mechanism for selecting extensions. I've found references to setup.py, but it's not being run.

What is the next step?

Thank you,
- Terry

I usually add


to the configure command line before makeing.

that works for me...
