It would be nice to have a COMPILING document with directions on the dependencies
I had to stumble on somebody's comments on another project listing a similar error to the one I had gotten to find the right set of steps.
I've tested a similar set of steps in a Dockerfile that worked well, but wasn't sure how familiar people would be with using a container to compile software for their host system.
sudo apt update && apt install -y --no-install-recommends ca-certificates gnupg autoconf automake build-essential libtool shtool libgcrypt20-dev libassuan-dev libgpg-error-dev git git clone https://git.incenp.org/damien/scdtools.git cd scdtools autoreconf --install && ./configure && make && sudo make install
I can explicitly mention the dependencies on the README. I didn’t do that because I had assumed it was obvious the project was dependent on GnuPG and its libraries.
Yeah, the dependencies weren't too hard to find since someone created a Gentoo ebuild that listed out the libassuan and libgcrypt. It was the autoconf/libtool/shtool requirements and invocations that were sneaky since it had been a while since I built a project from scratch.
Deleting a branch is permanent. It CANNOT be undone. Continue?
