+ Build Instructions for AmigaOS NetSurf 02 May 2014
+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+ This document provides instructions for building the AmigaOS version of
+ NetSurf and provides guidance on obtaining NetSurf's build dependencies.
+
+ AmigaOS NetSurf has been tested on AmigaOS 4.0 July 2007 Update and AmigaOS
+ 4.1. It will require modification for AmigaOS 3.9 or earlier, or other
+ Amiga-like platforms.
+
+ AmigaOS NetSurf will build against newlib by default, building against
+ clib2 has not been tested.
+
+
+ Building and executing NetSurf
+================================
+
+ First of all, you should examine the contents of Makefile.defaults
+ and enable and disable relevant features as you see fit by creating
+ a Makefile.config. Some of these options can be automatically
+ detected and used, although it is better to explicitly enable or
+ disable options.
+
+ You should then obtain NetSurf's dependencies, keeping in mind which options
+ you have enabled in the configuration file. See the next section for
+ specifics.
+
+ Once done, to build AmigaOS NetSurf on OS4, simply run:
+
+ 1> gmake
+
+ If that produces errors, you probably don't have some of NetSurf's build
+ dependencies installed. See "Obtaining NetSurf's dependencies" below, or turn
+ off the complaining features in a Makefile.config.
+
+ Running NetSurf from the build tree requires some setup:
+
+ 1> makelink resources amiga/resources force
+ 1> copy amiga/resources/themes/default/NetSurf.info NetSurf.info
+
+ It should then be possible to run NetSurf by executing NetSurf from the
+ Shell or by double-clicking on the icon.
+
+
+ Obtaining NetSurf's build dependencies
+========================================
+
+ Many of NetSurf's dependencies are included with the OS4 SDK or available
+ from Aminet or OS4Depot. The remainder must be built manually.
+
+ The NetSurf project's libraries
+---------------------------------
+
+ The NetSurf project has developed several libraries which are required by
+ the browser. To fetch each of these libraries, run the appropriate commands
+ from the Docs/LIBRARIES file.
+
+ To build and install these libraries, simply enter each of their directories
+ and run:
+
+ 1> gmake PREFIX=/path/to/buildsystem
+
+ The path MUST be in UNIX format and point to directory containing "share".
+
+ | Note: Building libsvgtiny requires gperf, which is available from Aminet:
+ |
+ | http://www.aminet.net/package/dev/c/gperf
+
+
+ cURL
+------
+
+ A version of libcurl built for newlib is available from Aminet
+
+ http://www.os4depot.net/share/development/library/misc/libcurl.lha
+
+
+
+ libpng
+--------
+
+ NetSurf uses libPNG to display PNG files.
+ It builds without any problems on OS4, or available from OS4Depot:
+
+ http://www.os4depot.net/share/development/library/graphics/libpng.lha
+
+
+ OpenSSL
+---------
+
+ NetSurf uses OpenSSL for encrypted transfers.
+
+ http://www.os4depot.net/share/development/library/misc/libopenssl.lha
+
+
+ Libharu
+---------
+
+ NetSurf can use Haru PDF to enable PDF export. Haru PDF can be obtained
+ from http://libharu.org/. We require libharu 2.2 or later.
+
+ | Note: libharu cannot be auto-detected by the Makefile. If you wish to
+ | enable it, do so by creating a Makefile.config file.
+
+
+ libregex
+----------
+
+ A version of the regular expression library can be obtained from Aminet:
+
+ http://www.aminet.net/package/dev/lib/libregex-4.4.3
+
+
+ openurl.library
+-----------------
+
+ The AmigaOS mailto: URL support uses openurl.library, this and the includes
+ can be obtained from Aminet:
+
+ http://www.aminet.net/package/comm/www/OpenURL-OS4
+
+
+ Spidermonkey
+--------------
+
+ Experimental Javascript support requires Spidermonkey. The patches to
+ build v1.7 are available from the NetSurf toolchains Git repository.
