Problem building Ikarus on windows MingW

Asked by Wietse

I'm working with MingW/MSYS and I'm trying to build Ikarus-0.0.3. I managed to build and install GMP.
When I do
    ./configure --prefix=/c/ikarus
I get the following error:
    checking for library containing dlsym... no
    configure: error: Cannot find libdl

What should I do?

Currently, Ikarus requires cygwin under windows. It cannot be compiled with mingw/msys or with MS visual studio.

Thanks for your answer.
I've installed Cygwin and was able to compile without a problem.
