I'm trying to compile NSIS on an Ubuntu 0.04 system. Everything is up-to-date, including scons, gcc, and python. I believe I have followed the instructions at http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Docs/AppendixG.html.
It seems the root problem is that I don't have an executable named "o" The key error is:
scons: Building targets ...
o build/release/makensis/build.o -c -Wno-non-virtual-dtor -O2 -Wall -m32 -D_WIN32_IE=0x0500 Source/build.cpp
sh: o: not found
I don't even know what "o" is ... there is no file on my system by that name. I suspect this is a scons glitch, and that somehow scons should be invoking cc or gcc. But I don't really know.
Does anyone know what is up with this?
I've attached a text file with all the details.
Also, FYI, I had to compile scons, as the package in the Ubuntu repository was just a twitch too old.
