Using MFC under WineLib


After reading the winelib guide to compiling the MFC, I have a few questions. I've tried asking wine-users but they haven't answered, and there isn't a winelib-users list; I think these questions are between lists, so I thought I'd try asking them here.

- Is it necessary to recompile MFC? Could we not just distribute the same mfc42.dll file as we use under Windows and use that?

- Has anyone written a complete, step-by-step guide to compiling the MFC under Linux? Are there any patches or Makefiles out there that I could use to speed up the process?

- Why can I not just download a precompiled libmfc.so (or .a) file from somewhere and use that?

My background is in Linux programming, but the program is too big to re-write using native libraries in a reasonable timeframe (at this stage). Furthermore, I don't think we're willing to shell out for multi-developer licences for Qt, so I believe that our best bet is to use winelib. Most of the program runs fine under Wine.

Many thanks for your help,

- Robert J. Lee
