A trivial Makefile.am patch + Fedora mingw32 packages

David Ludlow
I've found the the SVN trunk appears to be slightly broken when issued a
"make dist" command - the .csv files aren't included in the resulting
geotiff.tar.gz as I believe they should.  This trivial patch fixes that:

--- orig/Makefile.am    2009-09-12 23:37:38.000000000 -0400
+++ new/Makefile.am     2009-09-11 10:11:42.000000000 -0400
@@ -17,7 +17,7 @@

 csvdir = $(datadir)/epsg_csv

-csv_DATA =     csv/alias.csv \
+dist_csv_DATA =        csv/alias.csv \
                        csv/area.csv \
                        csv/change.csv \
                        csv/codes.csv \

Secondly, I'm working on an app that I'd like to cross-compile with
Fedora's mingw32 system.  To that end, I've got a mingw32-libgeotiff
package working just fine and wanted to have it submitted to Fedora as a
maintained package.  I'm happy to do this myself if necessary, but I
thought I'd ask if there was a better person to handle this to avoid
stepping on any toes.

Thirdly, I've found that the autotools build system in the latest
release (1.2.5) is a bit painful to cross-compile.  The latest SVN
revision appears to have a re-vamped build system that works
beautifully.  Is there any urgent reason that I should be working from
v1.2.5 instead of svn revision 1611 (or 1612 if the above patch gets
merged)?

Thanks - and thanks for all your fine work to date.  My app might not
exist today had I not seen that there was a geotiff library available to
start from.

Thanks for the patch!  I think you're probably the first to try 'make  
dist' so far.  I have applied your patch to svn trunk.

Not as far as I know.

The dust is still settling on our autotools/automake revamp of the GNU-
style build system, so the only hesitation would be if you are seeming  
to have trouble.  I think I did the first pass at it in January, and  
people are still finding issues.  I'm glad to hear confirmation that  
things seem to be working well and fancier stuff like cross-compiling  
is now well-supported do to the overhaul.

How close are we to a new release?  Frank?
