cedega cvs compile problem

Hello, I'm trying to compile cedega (the CVS version). I think I have all the dependencies covered.
(the configure script has stopped complaining at least)

However when I try to 'make' it I get this error:

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/user0/.WineCVS/sources/cvscedega/winex/dlls/glu32'
ld -r glu.o -o glu32.tmp.o
ld: Relocatable linking with relocations from format elf32-i386 (glu.o) to format elf64-x86-64 (glu32.tmp.o) is not supported
make[2]: *** [glu32.tmp.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/user0/.WineCVS/sources/cvscedega/winex/dlls/glu32'
make[1]: *** [glu32/] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/user0/.WineCVS/sources/cvscedega/winex/dlls'
make: *** [dlls] Error 2

Is this because the linker is trying to add a 64bit library to the 32bit code?

(which It should not as I have both 32bit and 64bit versions of the same library ( and development files for both)

Any ideas? anyone?

no i think the linker is trying to link a 32 bit object glu.o to 64 bit output.
as best as i can understand the output the linker is saying -- "this 32 bit code needs to be written as usual but with relocation bits or information added in so the code is loaded into memory spread out as if it were 64 bit (relocated)". i can't do this.

this is the -r flag in "ld -r" of your command line

i think cedega not ld is saying it doesn't support 64 bit.

I know wine project has been having alot of trouble implementing 64 bit because it involves getting binary compatability with win64 out of gcc.

does export LD="ld -m elf_i386" have any effect?

In fact why don't I see the command option listed with ld as well?

lots of other stuff compiled before that, why no complaints then?

I added export LDEMULATION="elf_i386"
to the environment and make gets a bit further.

However I'm stuck at a very obscure error:

signal_i386.c:431: warning: `struct vm86plus_struct' declared inside parameter list
signal_i386.c:431: warning: its scope is only this definition or declaration, which is probably not what you want
signal_i386.c: In function `save_vm86_context':
signal_i386.c:433: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
The only thing I can think of is I'm building it under the wrong version of gcc (3.3.5) or there is some typo in the cedega codebase itself.

I'm stumped.
