ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

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.
